At the Bauhaus, film practice was part of the teaching concept of a "science of seeing." Art and technology were to form a new unit. Film, as a technical medium par excellence, was an important element in this program. Media art opens up an insight into the spectrum of the various artistic genres that were taught and practiced at the Bauhaus and influenced each other: in the selected works of Heinrich Brocksieper, Werner Graeff, Kurt Kranz and Kurt Schwerdtfeger painting, drawing, graphics and installation are carried through. The medium of film also made it more dynamic Inspired by the abstract films of Hans Richter and Viking Eggeling, Bauhausers further developed the modern language of forms in media art experiments.
