(2022) REGARDING WATER

CURATORIAL FOR GROUP SHOW

Eigenheim Galerie Weimar


Group show I curated of works developed during the Bauhaus.Module course I taught at Bauhaus University Weimar in Winter Semester 2021/22. I titled the course “Making a film about Water with Artistic Research as Methodology”. In my work, I deploy artistic research as interdisciplinary methodology for filmmaking. My methodology introduces the idea of process-based filmmaking, as opposed to creating plot-based cinematic narratives. Concepts, such as Research Design, Boundary Objects and the value of interdisciplinary and collective work support this process-oriented work. All positions in the exhibit, of which some are installations, reflect a low to no-budget guerilla filmmaking and video art executed in just one semester. This group includes selected works by some of the students in my course: Katharina Mänz, Henning Schrader, Andrea Jaime Flores, Daphné Chamot-Rooke, Mon Sisu Satrawaha, Laila Mehlis, Pauline Kunze and Pia König. This group is diverse, ranging from Master students with solid artistic practice to Bachelors without previous filmmaking experience. They come from three different faculties at the Bauhaus: Art & Design, Media, Architecture & Urbanism. Another position exhibited by invitation is a longer format short film, a collaboration between a Bauhaus MA graduate in Film Studies, Paloma Llambías and former Ph.D. col- league, Maud Canisius. To complete this group exhibit is my own installation piece titled Disrupted Flows, developed during field work in the Amazonian forest and teaching this course. Above all, this group exhibit displays a joy for experimentation, a core value of the Bauhaus since its founding.
