The artograph’s workshop is a space for materials and practices of visual order as well as an intervention in the constructed work practice to negotiate aesthetic work and identity.
The shop’s concept was developed as a master project by the former Bauhaus students Christiane Schlütter and Tina Engelmann. In December 2013, it has been established as a company set in Karlstraße 6 in Weimar.
Besides selling a fine selection of personalized products and paper goods, various services and weekly workshops are offered.

Final thesis of Viola Kristin Steinberg
»Based on the fact that a magazine is only a magazine if it has two or more issues, my final thesis turned out to be a research on what a »serial« is, why we enjoy them and what they have to do with graphic design and/or magazines.«

Janna Seiter – VISUAL FOLKLORE – book and video work using found footage from a German village
As a person from the outside, I collected the visual material of one single village and reedited the pictures, texts and film clips in order to create new associations, relations and interpretations. The research was certainly „field work“: interacting with the people of the village, collecting their personal stories and photographs accessing private and municipal archives were a big part of the project and its material.
Visual Folklore deals with the found footage from a formal point of view, analizing its context, themes, language and photographic practise. The decontextualization of the material makes the private images and films more accessible to another audience and creates new connections. With a new order and combination, the images inherit a different level of interpretation, playfully revealing the daily life`s beauty and weirdness.

Patrick Martin — Power & Design
Based on the absurd aesthetics of micronations Patrick explores in his diploma project the visual representation of power as well as the historical and political meaning of national symbols. In a second step he also founded his own virtual micronation «Cloud Cuckoo Land» setting up an embassy in Weimar, in which everyone can apply for citizenship and receive a passport as confirmation. more
Berit von Enoch – The Fixation of Light
Berit’s diploma can be seen as an aesthetic investigation of the dialogue between light and photography. Thus, the focal point is the foundation for every photographic picture: the light.
It is a search for the appearances of light, looking for new and partly-generative forms of expression of photography, whose increasing ordinariness and banality in our digital era irritates the artist. During the occupation with the character of light and its meaning for photography she dealt with two other complexes: the phenomenon of colour and the interaction of light and water. In this process, altogether nine photographic products emerged verging on the topic in different ways while illustrating the range of visual expressions photography is able to create.
Stefan Schiek – Paintings
Stefan Schieks paintings are one thing in the first place: disturbing and deceiving. They are eery and strange, something is wrong here. These paintings are not what they appear to be. The bright and introspective colours want to take away the recipients fear. They snatch them into an illusory world, contradicting the shown situation, the context of the image gets dizzy and another meaning at the same time. Nature and culture are played off against each other, contents get a new meaning, it is confusing. These paintings deal with a familiar world in a state of dissolution. Things that were certain yesterday don´t mean anything the next morning. They tell us about a time of decay, people reveal their doubts, disband their nightmares, collective subconciousness is swashing to the surface. Facing the near breakdown, only the total disclosure of weaknesses is able to bear something new.
Gentle by serien.lighting
“Gentle” is a lampshade from Katharina Merl and Christina Lobermeyer who used an old handcraft technique to create it, called “smocking”.
It was developed during a textile project by Heiko Bartels and Welf Oertel in 2010.
Within this time they contacted the two heads from serien.lighting in Frankfurt who where amazed by this lampshade idea. In the end they developed a series of different lamps out of this idea called Gentle
which will be launched in autumn.

Visiting Illustrator Laura Ann Huber
Laura creates intuitively and is mainly inspired by everyday life and abstract art, which are inseparably connected, according to her. She has a sensitive way of showing the imperfections of things and people in her images/illustrations. They seem to include a hint of coincidence, but actually show the miscellaneousness of life itself and its peculiarities. Her themes are courageous and curious, as are her experiments on structures, colours and shapes. We are happy to have her as visiting Teacher for Illustration and Fashion this Semester. More work on her Illustration Portfolio

Tobias Dahl – the great flood
Surrounded by information every time and everywhere as a member of the first generation of “digital natives” Tobias decided to examine this subject as his diploma thesis. Are we made to handle this flood of permanent information? What is the value of information today?
SS 2014 – PLAIN, LINE, WORD, RHYTHM
WS 2014 / 2015 – DESIGNING NATIONS
What determines the form of states and communities?
Is it the different colours and designs found on national flags, differing currencies, specific guidance systems or uniforms and symbols of their executive branches that seperate different communities from each other?
Are there specific color codes, certain types of local typography or traditional uses of shapes and colours to be found?
To find answers to the above questions, the characteristics mentioned have been put into the topical main focus of this course.
works shown by Benjamin Schmidt & Philotheus Nisch, Lieselot Coenen, Maria Herholz, Dominic Dives, Sascha Krischock, Ferdinand Weigel, Kristin Schulze
WS 2014 / 2015 – BILDER PUBLIZIEREN
Graphic design is the combination and processing of the elements text and image as contents. The focus in this course was on the image. Under the aspect of publishing about ten – ? pieces the students created publications either fictitious as dummies or for example as self published alternative. We asked an amount o befriended photographers to be part of this course and to give the possibility to the students to work with their images which was one of the aims: to work with given material.
works shown by Julia Seo & Johannes Rinkenburger, Kani Marouf, Isabel Rincón de Arellano, Lina Portschinski & Sheila Maccallan , Max Salzborn, Margret Aurin
SS 2013 – FORMAPPARATE
In history of graphic design have been many designers who automatised the designing process with artistic methods. With the use of variables it became a generative composition of forms. The idea of »generative design« is by far older than the generation of graphic with software.
This subject was generating and documenting visual drafts which were produced with »analog machines«. With regard to content concepts were developed which dealed with the balance of forms, gravity and tension, point-line-plane, symmetry e.g.
At the end of the course the students presented their work in an exhibition. Works shown by Tim Munz, Georg Lurz, Bernadette Ritter.
SS 2013 – Apparate Formen
Main topic of this course is the construction and the analysis of form generating tools. What are these tools? – invisible appliance? Visible co-acteur of design? or are they products of themselves?
The course practice the building form creating tools and teaches the analytic view as well as the understanding of variable parameters. The meetings stand as jamming, workshop an laboratory.

WS 2012/2013 The Structuring Project
The topic dealt with different methologies in structuring as: parameter setting · ordering · arraying · setting up · assembling · stringing · rigging · designing · composing · sequencing · realising · serializing · systemizing · compiling.
Yoshico Jentczak – 1864
Lots of information and data is hidden in 1864 pictures that were taken during a six-month stay in Japan. This amount of data has been analysed, decomposed and restructured with the help of different parameters. While formal or abstract characteristics were chosen to create some infographics showing the extent of daily stored data and their retracing possibilities, several content-related sortings give a small insight into Japanese culture.
Florian Bräunlich – Stolen Music
The sound of a record is physically recorded and not optically. This allows Florians project to produce copies of a seven-inch-disc with different materials such as concrete, wax, rubber. All of them can reproduce sound.
Daniela Elflein – Coincidence and Systematics
What is coincidence? Can structures be found en coincidence? Or do we seek unconsciously patterns and rules to structure the random order and secondariness. These questions are the origin for Danielas work.
Maik Gräf – Exquisite Corpse
Basis for this work about unstructuring and coincidence are automatic techniques for picture finding of Surrealism. Through experimenting with several of these techniques and the following interpretation and combination in the sense of the surrealist game “Cadavre exquis”, organic objects and structures were unconsciously created without a defined plan. A large format print on baryta paper and a booklet which explains the development of the project and shows the results were created.
Erwin Lorenz – Traffic Lights
Traffic Lights is an experimental work with a GoPro camera as a test object. The camera was centrally installed on the wheel of the car during a ride through Weimar in the evening. The recordings of the camera produce a new way to collect and represent lights of the traffic.
The Exhibition of Students, Teachers and Alumni of the Bauhaus University is showing Works as Experiments, Fragments and Sketches. It should be understood more as a documentation of the Laboratory Character in tradition of the Bauhaus, than showing only contemporary Works in Art and Design. A big Variety of Design-Proposals and Drafts handling architectural, scientific or social Questions shows the interdisciplinary Character of the Bauhaus University. The publication, showing the exhibited Objects, Models, Films and Photographs is to be understood as Guide through the exhibition and a proposal as well.

aus dem Nähkästchen… – Michael Johansson
deals with ordinary objects that we all recognise, but in a way far from the ordinary. Driven by the agenda to densify and categorize the world, found objects are morphed into precisely stacked rectangular shapes, connected to a certain place, where their original purpose
is transformed and they are reformed into models of themselves. Johansson currently works in Berlin and Malmö.
This lecture is part of the series “aus dem Nähkästchen…” at the Chair of Media, Trend and Public Appearance. This lecture will be held in English.

Projektil 2013 – Manuel Bürger
Description: Slippery design calls for balance and order, leads nowhere and shows us worlds. Slippery design creates fields of meaning, mimesis in relations, lines of flight to oppositions. Slppry Dsgn controlls the game with semiotic shreds, it speaks in syllables, not in sentences. Slippery design relies on distribution through irritation, mutation, failures ~ causes discourses to totter. Slippery design is the true spirit of the meme, the virtuosity of us amateurs.
Manuel Bürger is a designer based in Berlin and we’re happy to announce that he is holding a lecture as well as a workshop as part of the Projektil lecture series.

Klaus Ronneberger – Bauhaus Masters
Form follows functions is the topic of the next Bauhaus Masters lecturer.
We welcome Klaus Ronneberger who will talk critiques in design and architecture on the basis of two Jaques Tatis films.
TRANSITIONS is the third exhibition series from weAREmedienkuenstler
Moritz Schell and Frederic Seybicke. Between May 2013 and March 2014, six exhibitions will take place in different places. For the purpose of shortening the process between creation and presentation, the dates and exhibition venues were chosen prior to the implementation of the projects.
We believe that showing the results of the creative process as early as possible outweighs the pursuit of perfection. TRANSITIONS occupies empty spaces that are in-between commercial use. As of popup-galleries, TRANSITIONS enlivens these ‘non-spaces’ through the implementation of artistic experiments.
The first TRANSITIONS event takes place this weekend,
Saturday, 08.06 19:00h
and Sunday, 09.06. 12:00-18:00h
in Weimar (Brühl 10/12/14).

That´s what a wise old woman once said. The last ten months we internalized her words – and yeah, she was right.
The Opera RUSALKA from Antonin Dvoràk was the base for our diploma project:
With much blood, sweat and tears we create our contemporary prospect in different ways of artistic realization. RUSALKA is getting a challenge and experimenting with it, all its facets. From our heart into yours, you can see our result composed of photography, video, fashion-design and Show.

betterbauhaus is now new-tendency
As some of you might have noticed the website and facebooksite of my bauhaus is better than yours
are not accessible anymore. They are very sorry about that.
Less than three weeks ago they received a letter from a well-known german hardware store saying that they would trespass their trademarks rights. First they believed it was a joke since they had always referred to the historical Bauhaus in a humorous way. They had to enter into negotiations but discovered soon that the opposing party was not willing to agree to any compromises. Plus there was only little chance to win against a company with millions of annual turnover.
So they had to make an immediate decision and they direct now into a NEW TENDENCY
which became their new trademark. We would invite you to check out their new web and Facebook spaces.
