DAF: +49+1

Workshop & Exhibition (DAF Exhibition-series, part I)

During the DAF trip to the US students from Weimar and Carnegie Mellon University Pittsburgh collaborated in a one-week workshop, which I co-organised with Prof. Fabian Winkler from CMU. The workshop outcomes were presented in an exhibition from 29 March to 4 April 2004 at Future Tenant, Pittsburgh, USA.

Extract from CMU’s press-release on the project:
“Future Tenant is hosting ‘+49+1’, a series of events accompanying the visit of a student group from the renowned Bauhaus-University Weimar, Germany to Carnegie Mellon’s School of Art.

From Thursday, March 25th to Sunday, March 28th, the group of German students will collaborate with students from the School of Art at Carnegie Mellon on video works related to urban space in Pittsburgh. During this time, Future Tenant will become meeting spot, base camp, and exchange zone between the groups of students and exhibition visitors. From Monday, March 29th to Sunday, April 4th, Future Tenant will feature a final exhibition of the Bauhaus–CMU collaborative video projects.”
