To celebrate 100 years of Bauhaus, we’re bringing together performance artists, visual artists, community groups and craft practitioners as a response to the women’s weaving workshop...

About

The women of the Bauhaus had no real other choice but to work in weaving. As painter, Oskar Schlemmer, said in 1920: 'Where there's wool, there's also a woman who will spin it, even if it is just to pass the time'. The weaving workshop that emerged in the Bauhaus was artistically progressive but lacking in gender parity. Yet, many made it a radical site of experimentation and exploration including Anni Albers, Gunta Stölzl, Michiko Yamawaki, and Lilly Reich.

This exhibition considers the legacies of crafting and weaving from modernism to the contemporary, both celebrating and challenging the avant-garde work of the weaving workshop.

The launch party will see performances by Raisa Kabir and Julie Rose Bower, as well as a chance to explore the exhibition and dance to DJs.

Full exhibition runs: 30th October - 6th November

Performance times on 1st Nov: TBC

'Something speaks to us, a sound, a touch, hardness or softness, it catches us and asks us to be formed’ – Anni Albers, ‘Material as Metaphor’ (1982)
