The 2019 symposium, celebrating both the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall & the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus (the enormously influential art school in Germany), features talks, a panel discussion, performances & an exhibition by artists from both cities, and culminates in the unveiling of a collaborative public artwork created and installed on site at Stormwater Studios!
