Modern Marionettes: The Triadic Ballet and Utopian Androgyny by Laura Arike


In pursuit of a “new modern being,” Bauhaus artist Oskar Schlemmer united dichotomous elements: machine and nature, abstraction and figuration, spirituality and objectivity. This talk will focus on Schlemmer’s fusion of masculinity and femininity in his costumes for the Triadic Ballet and the utopian goal created by its contradictory elements.
