Events | Gewand in drei Akten - Artist Talk

Online | March 7, 2021 | 4:00 PM

We present an artist talk by Villa Aurora Alumna Stef Heidhues and curator Jan Maruhn as part of the exhibition Gewand in drei Akten at the Mies van der Rohe Haus in Berlin. The exhibition marks the beginning of the series Space - Time - Odyssey, with which the Mies van der Rohe Haus celebrates the 135th birthday of the world-famous architect. It deals with the tense relationship between the architectural and the corporal space in his buildings. Due to COVID-19, the exhibition is currently not open to the public.

In Gewand in drei Akten, two Mies locations in Berlin, Haus Perls and Haus Lemke, and two protagonists of modernism, Mies van der Rohe and Max Pechstein, are set in dialogue. The building owner Martha Lemke also comes to life in a journey through time that leads from an image to a dress. A photograph by Bauhaus student Howard Dearstyne was the basis for the reinterpretation of one of her dresses. The artist Stef Heidhues brings the current time horizon into play: In her work, untitled (white shape) she plays with elements of form and design from modernism. She critically combines them into new arrangements in space.
