Walking from Weimar to Berlin
269km walk from Weimar to Berlin, November 2015
with Antonije Buric, Lisa Glauer, Filipe Serro, and Roozbeh Tazhibi; plus Pablo Hermann and Jan Lemitz.
On 9 November 2015, 5 artists began walking from Weimar to Berlin. The group’s members were all affiliated with Bauhaus University, and consisted of current and former students. 2 unaffiliated artists joined the walk on 2 days.
The 269km journey started from the Bauhaus Museum in Weimar to the Imaginary Bauhaus Museum, which was stationed at the Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin. Gorki Theater had invited the Imaginary Bauhaus Museum, a project for the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus, to participate in its 2nd Herbstsalon, the theme of which was migration.
The route loosely traced the Bauhaus Migration during the rise of National Socialism, going from Weimar, to Dessau, and then to Berlin. The walk took 6 days, with the group stopping each night at Gleina, Halle, Dessau, Hagelberg, Werder, before arriving in Berlin on 14 November.
