Dietmar Lupfer is co-founder and artistic director of the International Art and Culture Center Muffatwerk in Munich. He is responsible for an urban, future-oriented interdisciplinary program that brings together dance, performance, hybrid art and media art as well as work at the interface of art, technology and science. He conceives and curates art actions in public space, designs media art spaces and is interested in formats that have a performative and as well an installation-based context – what he calls “Moving Installations” as a kind of social sculpture.
Lupfer will discuss the recent production of SenseFactory, a spectacular large-scale performative installation combining architecture, sound, smell, light and AI technology into a immersive multisensorial experience. As one of only 23 projects supported by the German Federal Cultural Foundation (the German government federal cultural funding) to explore the repercussions of the Bauhaus in 2019, SenseFactory tries to imagine what role Bauhaus thinking can play in the 21st century.
