Endless Bauhaus (1): Olaf Nicolai

Endless Bauhaus (1): Olaf Nicolai

In their video column called Endless Bauhaus, Ilka and Andreas Ruby interview people of contemporary history on the Bauhaus’ current relevance. Is the Bauhaus something that has concluded its history or does it also have a contemporary presence?

The first response is from the artist Olaf Nicolai. His works – which belong to the tradition of conceptual art and therefore attempt to question the accustomed ways of looking at the things of everyday life – have been shown in countless international exhibitions and can also be found in many public collections.
