In collaboration with the Klassik Stiftung Weimar, the Goethe-Institut Hong Kong, the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong and the HKU Museum Society, Picturing the Bauhaus celebrates 100 years of the famed design school’s influence through the photographic eye of Bauhaus student and instructor Erich Consemüller.
Erich Consemüller was trained as a carpenter before moving to Weimar to enrol in the Bauhaus School where he studied. Apart from time spent in the workshop in Dessau, Consemüller was commissioned to photo-document the building, and to capture images of his fellow students and their design work. This UMAG exhibition of Erich Consemüller’s photographs highlights the school building’s interior features and artistic works created by Bauhaus artists. At the core of Bauhaus training was the ‘bau’ (building), within which students would spend their first year experimenting with colour, form and materials before choosing specialisations.
