Bauhaus Dolls

An architectural model of the famous Bauhaus schools turns into a puppet theater set where objects come to life and create an imaginary portrait of the school’s life and atmosphere

The show “Bauhaus dolls” was created as part of the exhibition “Bauhaus: Our Play, Our Party, Our Work” presented at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem during 2020, curated by Eli Bruderman and Noga Eliash-Zalmanovich. Inside an architectural model of the famous Bauhaus school in Dessau, objects come to life and create an imaginary portrait of the school’s daily life and atmosphere. The plot was inspired by three women artists and designers who attended the Bauhaus school, and is based on historical research, especially of use of puppetry at the school. The story begins with the opening day of the school and follows three female students through their adventures at the institution: friendly conversations, workshops and parties, along with exciting interactions with professors, other students and the city residents. The show uses different formats and genres including drama, sitcom, soap opera, documentation and comedy. The plot ends with the SS attack on the school which brought about its closing.
