Windmills | Sculptures and photomontages referring to Weißenhofsiedlung, Stuttgart (DEU) | mixed materials | ca. 30 x 10 x 10cm | 2018
I grew up at Weißenhofsiedlung, until I was 4 years old. As a child I thought we would live in America because the woman living at the corner in the Hans-Scharoun-house had an accent, everything was white and there was always a litte wind going, as if we lived at the coast.
Windmills were created after visiting the Weißenhofsiedlung as adult. Present knowledge merges with childlike memories.
The photomontages of Windmills will be a part of the publication: Beyond Bauhaus. New Approaches to Architecture and Design Theory. Publ.: Dr.-Ing. Johannes Warda, Bauhaus Institute for history and theory of architecture and planning, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar (DEU)
