The International Symposium ‘Avgust Černigoj and the Legacy of Experimental Practices’ is part of the research and exhibition project Bauhaus – Networking Ideas and Practice (BAUNET), which involves four cultural institutions from four European countries: Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb (Croatia), Universalmuseum Joanneum, Graz (Austria), Academy of Fine Arts,Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and Škofja Loka Museum, Škofja Loka (Slovenia). BAUNET intends to explore and present the activities and interrelations of artists from South-East Europe, who were schooled at the renowned international school of architecture, design and visual arts – Bauhaus, and its influences on art practices during the fifties of the 20th century in South-East Europe and also the legacy of avant-garde movements. The mainstay of the two years project (oct.2013-sept.2015) are the aesthetic and pedagogic concepts of the Bauhaus school, which were applied to all visual art disciplines.
