THE BAUHAUS #itsalldesign

thats the name of the new exhibition at VITRA DESIGN MUSEUM
(26.09.2015 – 28.02.2016)

I was invited by HUGO BOSS to see the mechanical ballett before the vernissage of the new DAS BAUHAUS exhibition at Vitra Design Museum. that was really something, I have never seen anything like that and I am so happy to have had the chance to see it. during the whole play we were not able to see the dancers. they were hidden behind their geometric shapes in different colors. they moved sometimes alone sometimes together with the slow and fast music. I have found it super interesting to see the moving shapes and to see how with every move a new form and new shape was born. I was sometimes guessing how the people behind must be bending themselves in order to achieve those patterns and moves. also the whole thing had something very architectural. I sometimes saw layers of section plans or weird building shapes. thank you again for letting me see this, it was wonderful.

Das Bauhaus_Exhibition


With the major exhibition »The Bauhaus #itsalldesign« the Vitra Design Museum presents, a comprehensive overview of design at the Bauhaus for the first time. The exhibition encompasses a multiplicity of rare, in some cases never-before-seen exhibits from the fields of design, architecture, art, film and photography. At the same time, it confronts the design of the Bauhaus with current debates and tendencies in design and with the works of contemporary designers, artists and architects. In this way, »The Bauhaus #itsalldesign« reveals the surprising present-day relevance of a legendary cultural institution. Bauhaus artists and designers featured in the exhibition include Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Lyonel Feininger, Walter Gropius, Wassily Kandinsky and many more. Contemporary participants include the works of Olaf Nicolai, Adrian Sauer, Enzo Mari, Lord Norman Foster, Opendesk, Konstantin Grcic, Hella Jongerius, Alberto Meda and Jerszy Seymour. The mission of the »Staatliches Bauhaus«, founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar in 1919, was to educate a new type of designer. Students at the Bauhaus were to acquire artisanal and artistic foundations as well as knowledge of the human psyche, the process of perception, ergonomics and technology – a profile that continues to define the occupation of the designer to this day. Yet the concept of design at the Bauhaus also gave designers a comprehensive creative mandate: they were not to merely fabricate objects of daily use, but should take an active role in the transformation of society.

about the exhibition :

The exhibition is divided into four thematic groups, beginning with a look at the historical and social context of the Bauhaus. A second section examines iconic but also lesser-known design objects from the Bauhaus, as well as the history of their origins at the junction of art, craft, technology and industry. A further area of the exhibition investigates the theme of space and demonstrates how many different designers were involved in formulating the understanding of design at the Bauhaus – including stage artists, architects with their deliberations on minimum dwellings and artists who developed colour theories and spatial models. In this regard, the Bauhaus reveals itself as likely to be the first artistic »total experiment« of the modernist period, exploring the dissemination of design in all areas of life. The last section considers the communication of the Bauhaus, from typography and exhibitions to experimental film art and photography as well as the – often systematically planned – creation of myths and clichés that continue to surround the Bauhaus to the present day. »The Bauhaus #itsalldesign« is accompanied by an over 400-page publication, which contains an extensive illustrated catalogue section as well as essays by renowned authors such as Arthur Rüegg and Patrick Rössler along with a glossary of key concepts and terms relating to design at the Bauhaus. »The Bauhaus #itsalldesign« is an exhibition of the Vitra Design Museum and the Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany (Bundeskunsthalle). Following its debut at the Vitra Design Museum, the exhibition will open at the Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn in spring 2016.





“THERE IS ALWAYS AN OPEN DOOR” – there is always a way – might not be easy and simple but in the end there will be a solution!

today I wanna share with you my tips and tricks on how I keep the world informed about I SAW SOMETHING NICE. some things might be very simple and some need a bit more research but I am sure it will be totally worth it.

always carry businesscards with you because you never know who you are going to meet and it always gives a nice impression when you have your own cards.  use the same design for your cards as you use for your website this is called CD aka corporate design and is part of the CI aka corporate identity. in my case I buy blank white cards and I use a stamp with the same font that I use on the blog to make my cards.

let your friends and followers know what you do and share your links and photos with them via all the different channels and platforms there are. if you only share words, hashtags and links then twitter might be your thing, in case it is more about images, texts and links then facebook should be your thing and when its mainly about images and hashtags then instagram is your thing. I mainly use facebook but also share my fotos via instagram and share my links via twitter. there are certain times when your audience is online and offline and it is key to find that out and post according to their schedule.

it is very important to know your people. who reads your content, what age, what gender? do you know these things? there are many ways to find out. I use google analytics and I find it very easy. once you know your followers and readers you can also find out more about their behaviour and lifestyle. are these people a lot in front of the computer or are they mainly using the smartphone because they are students or younger folks? to know such things are key to a successful and widespread content.

what do you read in the internet? do you read blogs or feeds or are you subscribed to newsletters? do you like to watch videos, if so do you like to watch tutorials or vlogs? the best question for great content is: WOULD I LIKE TO READ OR WATCH IT? if so go ahead and do it, I am sure you will be successful due to your authenticity and passion.

BUT you have to give credits – this is crucial! when you take a photo that you didnt take yourself it is always best to ask before. in case they dont answer or you can not contact them then anyway always put the correct credits, such as link, author etc.

I hope that was helpful, I will try to post more of these tips and tricks in the future. stay tuned. X
