On the occasion of the exhibition "Studio 100" I was able to realize Colour Me Surprised (2012) for the second time together with Wouter Sibum (Rotterdam). Now the catalog is available and we are happy about the nice contribution!
Studio 100 was an extraordinary exhibition series on the occasion of the Bauhaus anniversary. In 100 days the exhibition brought 100 protagonists together - artists, designers, architects, performance artists and musicians - an exhibition that showed the artworks of alumnis and current students from 25 years of today's Bauhaus-University Weimar. The project name refers
to the concentrated artistic energy/synergy and creative actionism in 100 years of Bauhaus. Various artistic areas were combined in temporary exhibition blocks. The Studio 100 exhibitions were accompanied by readings, manifestes, performances and podium lectures, for which the small Bauhaus stage was created. The LAB_Studio100 was initiated for the preparation of this project. The LAB as open work-space for everyone, served for scientific discussions and invited to artistic and performative experiments.
There were cooperations with the HfG Archive Ulm and the Pratt Institute New York to establish an international and supraregional connection to contemporary art and current developments in design . With this exhibition tour referred inter-nationally and supra-regionally to the Bauhaus anniversary in Weimar. The exhibition locations, the Kunsthalle Harry Graf Kessler in the center, the Neufert Box in Weimar-Gelmeroda and the exhibition rooms of Gaswerk in Weimar - Weimar extended
across the entire city.
"Studio 100 is a journey through the Bauhaus which the project group and its protagonists in
Weimar have experienced and lived."

Releasing November 7, 2020
I'm pleased to let you know that my work will be featured in the book "Friend of the Artist". Volume 12 will launch on November 7, 2020
Friend of the Artist is a platform dedicated to showcasing the work of talented emerging artists from around the world. Each volume is unique and features a diversity of aesthetics and ideas. The printed books are curated by experienced jurors, who work together to carefully select the top artists’ works.
During times when social norms continue to evolve, this particular volume of FOA can be important to the overall practice of viewing art. As more galleries have taken exhibitions online, making art interactions a “visual only” experience, the gift of standing before a work of art as it sits in context to its surroundings has become far less taken for granted. Through printed volumes, FOA can continue to provide a physical encounter for the viewer to not only take in the works in a tactile form, but they can also experience them in context to other carefully curated works that surround them in the pages of the volume.
Within the pages of Volume 12, FOA is proud to feature 40 artists from 9 different countries who work in multiple mediums. Thanks to the panel of experienced jurors from around the globe including Natasha Arselan, Adrian Zuñiga, Roya Sachs, and Justin Archer.
