Janna Seiter – VISUAL FOLKLORE – book and video work using found footage from a German village
As a person from the outside, I collected the visual material of one single village and reedited the pictures, texts and film clips in order to create new associations, relations and interpretations. The research was certainly „field work“: interacting with the people of the village, collecting their personal stories and photographs accessing private and municipal archives were a big part of the project and its material.
Visual Folklore deals with the found footage from a formal point of view, analizing its context, themes, language and photographic practise. The decontextualization of the material makes the private images and films more accessible to another audience and creates new connections. With a new order and combination, the images inherit a different level of interpretation, playfully revealing the daily life`s beauty and weirdness.

Patrick Martin — Power & Design
Based on the absurd aesthetics of micronations Patrick explores in his diploma project the visual representation of power as well as the historical and political meaning of national symbols. In a second step he also founded his own virtual micronation «Cloud Cuckoo Land» setting up an embassy in Weimar, in which everyone can apply for citizenship and receive a passport as confirmation. more
Berit von Enoch – The Fixation of Light
Berit’s diploma can be seen as an aesthetic investigation of the dialogue between light and photography. Thus, the focal point is the foundation for every photographic picture: the light.
It is a search for the appearances of light, looking for new and partly-generative forms of expression of photography, whose increasing ordinariness and banality in our digital era irritates the artist. During the occupation with the character of light and its meaning for photography she dealt with two other complexes: the phenomenon of colour and the interaction of light and water. In this process, altogether nine photographic products emerged verging on the topic in different ways while illustrating the range of visual expressions photography is able to create.
Stefan Schiek – Paintings
Stefan Schieks paintings are one thing in the first place: disturbing and deceiving. They are eery and strange, something is wrong here. These paintings are not what they appear to be. The bright and introspective colours want to take away the recipients fear. They snatch them into an illusory world, contradicting the shown situation, the context of the image gets dizzy and another meaning at the same time. Nature and culture are played off against each other, contents get a new meaning, it is confusing. These paintings deal with a familiar world in a state of dissolution. Things that were certain yesterday don´t mean anything the next morning. They tell us about a time of decay, people reveal their doubts, disband their nightmares, collective subconciousness is swashing to the surface. Facing the near breakdown, only the total disclosure of weaknesses is able to bear something new.
Gentle by serien.lighting
“Gentle” is a lampshade from Katharina Merl and Christina Lobermeyer who used an old handcraft technique to create it, called “smocking”.
It was developed during a textile project by Heiko Bartels and Welf Oertel in 2010.
Within this time they contacted the two heads from serien.lighting in Frankfurt who where amazed by this lampshade idea. In the end they developed a series of different lamps out of this idea called Gentle
which will be launched in autumn.

Visiting Illustrator Laura Ann Huber
Laura creates intuitively and is mainly inspired by everyday life and abstract art, which are inseparably connected, according to her. She has a sensitive way of showing the imperfections of things and people in her images/illustrations. They seem to include a hint of coincidence, but actually show the miscellaneousness of life itself and its peculiarities. Her themes are courageous and curious, as are her experiments on structures, colours and shapes. We are happy to have her as visiting Teacher for Illustration and Fashion this Semester.

Natalie Mohadjer – Weimar Paradies
The onset of twilight heralds the kids’ time: In the evening the high-rise community of Weimar-West belongs to them. Weimar-West, the city quarter built in the 80’s and isolated from the rest of the idyllic cultural city of Weimar, faces challenges like a high level of unemployment, an aging population, conflicts between foreigners and neo-Nazis and reflects a poor image. Since 2001, the quarter has been peripherally integrated into the program “Social City”.

WS 2012/2013 The Structuring Project
The last Semesters Topic dealt with different Methologies in Structuring as: parameter setting · ordering · arraying · setting up · assembling · stringing · rigging · designing · composing · sequencing · realising · serializing · systemizing · compiling.
Yoshico Jentczak – 1864
Lots of information and data is hidden in 1864 pictures that were taken during a six-month stay in Japan. This amount of data has been analysed, decomposed and restructured with the help of different parameters. While formal or abstract characteristics were chosen to create some infographics showing the extent of daily stored data and their retracing possibilities, several content-related sortings give a small insight into Japanese culture.
Florian Bräunlich – Stolen Music
The sound of a record is physically recorded and not optically. This allows Florians project to produce copies of a seven-inch-disc with different materials such as concrete, wax, rubber. All of them can reproduce sound.
Daniela Elflein – Coincidence and Systematics
What is coincidence? Can structures be found en coincidence? Or do we seek unconsciously patterns and rules to structure the random order and secondariness. These questions are the origin for Danielas work.
Maik Gräf – Exquisite Corpse
Basis for this work about unstructuring and coincidence are automatic techniques for picture finding of Surrealism. Through experimenting with several of these techniques and the following interpretation and combination in the sense of the surrealist game “Cadavre exquis”, organic objects and structures were unconsciously created without a defined plan. A large format print on baryta paper and a booklet which explains the development of the project and shows the results were created.
Erwin Lorenz – Traffic Lights
Traffic Lights is an experimental work with a GoPro camera as a test object. The camera was centrally installed on the wheel of the car during a ride through Weimar in the evening. The recordings of the camera produce a new way to collect and represent lights of the traffic.
The Exhibition of Students, Teachers and Alumni of the Bauhaus University is showing Works as Experiments, Fragments and Sketches. It should be understood more as a documentation of the Laboratory Character in tradition of the Bauhaus, than showing only contemporary Works in Art and Design. A big Variety of Design-Proposals and Drafts handling architectural, scientific or social Questions shows the interdisciplinary Character of the Bauhaus University. The publication, showing the exhibited Objects, Models, Films and Photographs is to be understood as Guide through the exhibition and a proposal as well.

FROM NATURE TO ABSTRACT – SS2012
Attending to our main Project “Nature” we were glad to have two great visiting lecturers, John Russo and Gina Mönch from Studioheyhey in Frankfurt. They gave a one-week Class and the task was to analyse different Objects from Nature and to examine those to their stilistic attributes visually. From these researches a visual library was build an posters are genereated.

THE TIME PROJECT – WS 2011/2012
Dealing with time graphically was the subject of the project oft he last semester. The second project was a collaboration with the Faculty of Media, and the task was to build time machines.
Claudia Symank, Yulia Wagner – Time of my Life
Besides time, we also had an interdisciplinary class together with the Faculty of Media. This concept was developed in the time-machine-class. It is a time detector app that periodically manages daily happenings, which can be measured and displayed by polygons.
Florian Fischer – T
Searching for the essence of time and as an experiment to visualize t, cress was planted on Florian’s head throughout a period of seven days. After seven days of complete isolation and sleeping in a seated position, an additional dilatability could be confirmed.
Florian Apel – Sound Calendars
By building rhythms based on the time intervals and by revisualizing them with the help of sound spectrograms, Florian screen-printed a series of very abstract calendar systems.
Janna Seiter & Sarah Bergmann
Six small examinations about Time. From Hermann-Dough to the Time Scarf, or the Time Machine Substance with Travel-Glitter.
Time – Distance – Machine
Adrian Palko’s experiments with time and distance relations with a simple slit-scan machine combined with “modern” VCR-technologies with a direct printer output.
Marian Bodenstein – Tape Clock
Twelve tape recorders and twelve tapes with 60 minutes. A perfect requirement to build a clock, which is based on music. The tapes all content the subject time, some are special mix tapes, some are found footage.
René Schwollow – Button Box Watch
Besides some experiments on forms and researches, René made a simple black box with a built-in sales slip printer, which prints the time if you press the white button.

aus dem Nähkästchen… – Michael Johansson
deals with ordinary objects that we all recognise, but in a way far from the ordinary. Driven by the agenda to densify and categorize the world, found objects are morphed into precisely stacked rectangular shapes, connected to a certain place, where their original purpose
is transformed and they are reformed into models of themselves. Johansson currently works in Berlin and Malmö.
This lecture is part of the series “aus dem Nähkästchen…” at the Chair of Media, Trend and Public Appearance. This lecture will be held in English.

Projektil 2013 – Manuel Bürger
Description: Slippery design calls for balance and order, leads nowhere and shows us worlds. Slippery design creates fields of meaning, mimesis in relations, lines of flight to oppositions. Slppry Dsgn controlls the game with semiotic shreds, it speaks in syllables, not in sentences. Slippery design relies on distribution through irritation, mutation, failures ~ causes discourses to totter. Slippery design is the true spirit of the meme, the virtuosity of us amateurs.
Manuel Bürger is a designer based in Berlin and we’re happy to announce that he is holding a lecture as well as a workshop as part of the Projektil lecture series.

TRANSITIONS is the third exhibition series from weAREmedienkuenstler
Moritz Schell and Frederic Seybicke. Between May 2013 and March 2014, six exhibitions will take place in different places. For the purpose of shortening the process between creation and presentation, the dates and exhibition venues were chosen prior to the implementation of the projects.
We believe that showing the results of the creative process as early as possible outweighs the pursuit of perfection. TRANSITIONS occupies empty spaces that are in-between commercial use. As of popup-galleries, TRANSITIONS enlivens these ‘non-spaces’ through the implementation of artistic experiments.
The first TRANSITIONS event takes place this weekend,
Saturday, 08.06 19:00h
and Sunday, 09.06. 12:00-18:00h
in Weimar (Brühl 10/12/14).

RUSALKA – „ these words are getting enormously significant for you.“
That´s what a wise old woman once said. The last ten months we internalized her words – and yeah, she was right.
The Opera RUSALKA from Antonin Dvoràk was the base for our diploma project:
With much blood, sweat and tears we create our contemporary prospect in different ways of artistic realization. RUSALKA is getting a challenge and experimenting with it, all its facets. From our heart into yours, you can see our result composed of photography, video, fashion-design and Show.

betterbauhaus is now new-tendency
As some of you might have noticed the website and facebooksite of my bauhaus is better than yours
are not accessible anymore. They are very sorry about that.
Less than three weeks ago they received a letter from a well-known german hardware store saying that they would trespass their trademarks rights. First they believed it was a joke since they had always referred to the historical Bauhaus in a humorous way. They had to enter into negotiations but discovered soon that the opposing party was not willing to agree to any compromises. Plus there was only little chance to win against a company with millions of annual turnover.
So they had to make an immediate decision and they direct now into a NEW TENDENCY
which became their new trademark. We would invite you to check out their new web and Facebook spaces.

Projektil 2012 — Manuel Raeder
Manuel Raeder lives and works in Berlin. His main focus lies in generating collaborations with artists, plants, scientists, parrots, fashion designers, printers, interns, librarians, curators, rappers, photocopiers, book binders, none professionals and theorists, always questioning upon the practice and re-evaluating the position that humans have in relation to their objects. His work has a wide range of formats exploring the boundaries between exhibitions, ephemera, books, type design, editing and publishing to furniture design. In the past 10 years he has realized various exhibitions, books, commissioned and self-published, that explore the boundaries of artists books, editing, and the book as a publishing medium. Website

kiosk.6: Grow Together
An intervention between inside and outside – the kiosk.6 becomes a place of process, of change and transformation. Characterized by the movement and the development of plants, the growth becomes the center of the experience and tangible for the viewer in a special way. Draw from this development, we study and observe and work with it. Scents, colors, shapes and textures combine to lead us and own artistic consequences.
A project from and with
Ina Niehoff and Anna Teuber
Finissage: 06.05.2012 – 15.00
