BAUHAUS 1919-1933 Art/ Industry• Gropius himself said,"The Bauhaus does not pretend to be a crafts school; contact with industry is consciously sought...the old craft workshops will develop into industrial laboratories: from their experimentation will evolve standards for industrial production...The teaching of a craft is meant to prepare for designing for mass production. Starting with the simplest tools and least complicated jobs, he gradually acquires ability to master more intricate problem and to work with machinery, while at the same time he keeps in touch with the entire process of production from start to finish."

Andy Goldsworthy“I enjoy the freedom of just using my handsand “found” tools–a sharp stone, the quill of afeather, thorns. I take the opportunities eachday offers: if it is snowing, I work with snow, atleaf-fall it will be with leaves; a blown-over treebecomes a source of twigs and branches. I stopat a place or pick up a material because I feelthat there is something to be discovered. Hereis where I can learn.”
As a woman in a patriarchalsociety, as an Arab citizen in a Jewish Maiada Aboudcountry ….in my videos there arealways some forms of resistance to Art/Feminism/Politicsthe sexual and social roles played byme as a woman, the roles that I havehad to follow through all of my life as away of transcending the “unkindness”of the real circumstances. Manyreasons brought me to deal with theissues of gender and sexualityespecially within the femalebody, viewed as a taboo in the Arabworld, so that I could accomplish thethings that are forbidden in myfamily, society, and religion. I haveused my body as an actual material toreflect the social and the emotionalconflict, trying to break downbarriers between art and life. I havetried to create self portraits bybreaking and representing my identityin order to make the viewer aware ofthe structure of seeing andexploring my experience in life, givinghim a chance to have a look at mypersonal world and my own nature.

Conceptual clothing by Jenni Dutton Filleted Mermaid made from thin wire, fabric and wax, decorated with broken glass. I have always been fascinated with the legend of the mermaid. There is something about the combining of the female and fish forms that has a powerful and sexual image. She is at once helpless and yet alluring but this hybrid creature, like all creatures of the deep stands for the unconscious, and in particular for the anima, the femine aspect within the psyche.
