Swimming Pool, Bauhaus Stadtbad
Rowdy will inhabit a derelict Bauhaus swimming pool to create a deep space for entanglement, unravelling, connections and disconnections. Somewhere between a happening, performance and installation, we are invited to engage with the space to explore ourselves, our physicalities, and our relationships with technology through a participatory live-soundscape performed by the artist for this unique setting.
