Modernism! Utopia! Architecture! Sit-upons! The Nerve Tank explores the Bauhaus, the seminal German school of design that operated from 1919 until 1933, when the Nazi regime shut it down. bauhaus the bauhaus is a fully immersive research and performance experience, where collective action meets mass production to form a stylized dream of progress. Are the ideals of the Bauhaus alive and well today? Or have they been concealed, co-opted, and Ikea-d to death? This project is a multimedia assembly of music, video, movement, and language. Henry Ford, Tom Wolfe, Walter Gropius and Andy Warhol all make appearances. The company is collaborating on its creation with German dramaturge and director Lutz Kessler.
