Make holes – Seriously?

In this workshop we revisit one of the strangest tasks in Josef Albers’ preliminary course. He apparently instructed his students to “make a hole in the paper” and then left them to it. What was the purpose of the exercise? This is the focus of our investigation – and the result will be a collection of holes. We will make the holes and study what happens when we punch, cut, rip and perforate paper, and what design possibilities arise from making holes – also in combination with other materials.

Friederike Holländer has worked at the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung as part of the Bauhaus Agents programme in Berlin since 2016.
