& Installation
------------------------------------------------------------------

DRESSCODE is a site-specific installation at the BAUHAUS Dessau along the Gropiusallee. Under the banner of a "Signalskulptur" (signal sculpture) it connects the historic BAUHAUS building and the famous Meisterhäuser (Master's houses).

DRESSCODE represents a contemporary reflection on a current historic exhibition about projects at the BAUHAUS from the 20s that mostly never got realized called Big Plans. Applied modernism in Saxony-Anhalt 1919-1933.

As a so-called Détournement, a misappropriation, in the sense of the 60s Situationist movement it turns a daily object into an art object by ignoring its original purpose. A tree protection model used to protect trees nearby construction sites is the inspiration for this sculpture. By changing only three parameters: surface (smooth instead of rough), color (yellow instead of colorless), amount (X amount instead of the amount needed) its meaning begin to shift. Instead of a "useful purpose" it turns into a visual experience playing with the viewer's expectations and trained knowledge: art or construction site, clothes or costume, fake or real?
