Xanti Schawinsky (1904–1979) was a master of improvisation. Whether in the field of set design, as a photographer, or as an artistic creator of exhibition buildings and large-scale photomontages, his surprising ideas accompanied him from the Bauhaus in Dessau, to Black Mountain College, and then to New York University.
While his late works are now well known through
exhibitions and publications, some of his early work remains almost
undiscovered until now: New documents from the estate; letters from Walter
Gropius, autobiographical outtakes, and previously unpublished photos from the Magdeburg city archive.
For the occasion of the 100-year anniversary of the Bauhaus, the LWL-Museum für Kunst und Kultur in Münster is planning the exhibition Bauhaus and America. Based on the importance of the Bauhaus and in particular the Bauhaus stage as an interdisciplinary laboratory for experiments with light and movement, the exhibition will for the first time illuminate the diverse artistic altercations of both former Bauhaus members and Americans with light and motion – ranging from light art and kinetic art to experimental film as well as dance and performance art.
Kunsthaus Zurich, Switzerland: Group show curated by Catherine Hug; (Xanti Schawinsky represented with 20 works) The 1920s were a decade of both progression and backlash. A catastrophic world war followed by a pandemic with remarkable parallels to the current corona crisis awakened people’s thirst for life. At no time in the 20th century was the desire for change more intense.
