Abstract

What significance does the Bauhaus movement still have for contemporary art? How could a museum collection about the Bauhaus be developed further in the future? What will a museum’s Bauhaus collection be like in 2030, and which types of work and content will it feature? In an interview with Ulrike Bestgen, Danica Dakić tries to answer these questions in a long-term research and exhibition project, which will be presented during the opening of the new bauhaus museum weimar. The project is entitled IMAGINARY BAUHAUS MUSEUM. In this context, one of the crucial, and driving, statements of Dakić is the following summary: “In my life as an artist, I have worked with the most diverse groups of people. Even though many of them had never entered a museum, they felt that art was about issues that have a deep impact on life. This is crucial and must be borne in mind by museums: to explore that art is something vibrant, it is about exchange. We do not need trivialization for people to perceive and respond to the energies of artwork. Instead, it requires honesty and a genuine interest to learn from visitors.”
