The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Zwischen is a reimagining of the Bauhaus workbook for the 21st century, taking place online each Thursday at 6pm (previously held on Tuesdays).

Operational from 1919 to 1933 in Germany, the Bauhaus was one of Europe's most influential art schools. Its masters, including Johannes Itten, László Moholy-Nagy and Josef Albers, created a workbook bringing together exercises aimed at developing their students' abilities, covering subjects like material properties, composition and colour theory.

Join Zwischen to take a weekly leap into the masters workshop, with an open conversation of learning and practise. Each session will feature a short 25-minute talk and a mediated discussion with new exciting practitioners and creative people.

This series of creative weekly workshops, talks and discussions is organised by That Looks Queer, a blog aimed at shining a spotlight on the work of LGBT+ artists and art with a social focus. The first session featured artist and animator Liz Churton, who is working on a piece about touch and isolation built around people’s audio diaries during lockdown.

Next up, on 18 June, Zwischen will be joined by artist Ritchard Allaway to discuss light as a medium, the works and sculpture of László Moholy-Nagy and the desire to capture the immaterial.

See the Zwischen Facebook page for the Zoom link an hour before the talk goes live each Thursday.
