BAUHAUS Art Store, 2002

Project Bauhaus Art Store was a performance inside the Bauhaus Shopping Mole, where their products on Sale become a temporary Art pieces. I pasted the Labels with names and attributes of the notorious German Bauhaus Art school members on their products, explaining how in the beginning everything was an utopia, which ended up in the situation in which we are today. The visitors were buying products unknowing that they are buying some sort of Artistic Ready Meads. Discovering them only at home when discovering an odd label on the product they purchased.

The Result was the largest SALE of Ready Mades of All Times!

Gropius himself said,”The Bauhaus does not pretend to be a crafts school; contact with industry is consciously sought…the old craft workshops will develop into industrial laboratories: from their experimentation will evolve standards for industrial production…
