Teaser text

The exhibition "Learning from Loheland" at the MK&G presents a forgotten chapter of German design and art history: Loheland, a visionary feminist settlement and school project in the Rhön region in the state of Hesse that was founded concurrently with the Bauhaus in 1919. Loheland was influenced by social reform movements and avant-garde ideas for developing a new way of living. With a focus on the artistic aspects of Loheland, the MK&G has invited six contemporary women artists – the stage designer and artist Marie Gimpel (b. 1986), the visual artists Alex Hojenski (b. 1989) and Judith Kisner (b. 1983), the visual artist and filmmaker Jasmin Preiß (b. 1984), visual artist and musician Julia Rómas (b. 1994), and graphic designer Lea Sievertsen (b. 1990) – to explore the founding ideas of this extraordinary project in works developed especially for the exhibition.

The exhibition in cooperation with the Loheland-Stiftung is made possible by the kind support of the Claussen-Simon-Stiftung, the Berit und Rainer Baumgarten Stiftungsfonds under the umbrella of the Hamburgische Kulturstiftung, and the Stiftung Kunstfonds.
