DELIGHTING THE WORLD
Jill Baroff
Joachim Grommek
Jan van der Ploeg

One hundred years ago, the Bauhaus,  a new art school, set out to delight mankind.

The time had come to discover modern forms of living,  which influenced everyday experiences, architecture and not least art. Looking back today, the Bauhaus’s radical concepts remain seductive. Now, as then, the idea of seeing and constantly reinventing the world lies at the very heart of the contemporary art practice.

The German artist Joachim Grommek, his Dutch colleague Jan van der Ploeg, and the U.S. artist Jill Baroff –  the fourth generation of artists, following the radical trends of the 1920’s, which not only included the German Bauhaus but also Russian Constructivism, or the Dutch de Stijl Group— look at the famous “rearview mirror” of Modernism, while at the same time drawing a picture full of contemporary relevance.

All three artists share a conceptual and universal language of forms. Sometimes void of narrative these artists expand the modernist vocabulary and truly make it their own.
