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.
Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
