Michael Vorfeld: Light Bulb Music
GLÜHLAMPENMUSIK is an audio-visual performance which sounds are created by using various light bulbs and switching elements. The changes in light intensity, the glow of the filaments and the rhythmic diversity of the flickering and pulsating lights are immediately translated into a rich, electro-acoustic world of sound.

8 – 9 pm
Trash or Treasure? 
Fake or original? Plagiarism or licensed product? Trash or Treasure? The design expert Dr Rezepa-Zabel explains values and valences in design and the distinguishing features for the real or the bad using the example of modern objects, especially the Bauhaus lamp and its many aftereffects.

7:30 – 7:50 pm, 9:30 – 9:50 pm, 10:30 – 10:50 pm
Guided tour with a curator through the special exhibition:
Unique Piece or Mass Product?
Which form is understood as modern? What are the characteristics of handmade unique pieces and industrial mass products? The exhibition uses selected objects and documents to illustrate the struggle of the Werkbund and Bauhaus for a concept of modern design in the early 20th century.
