Event Description

Opening reception May 15, 7-9 pm – screening of the rare 1927 Bauhaus film
In 1919, engineer and Midgard founder Curt Fischer patented the first movable electric light solving the issue of poor lighting on factory workbenches, and the concept led to the commercialization of several significant designs of articulated lights. Architects of the Bauhaus took note, and incorporated Midgard’s Type 113 into the school at Dessau. Sponsored by Midgard, Gebrüder T, AMEICO and the Goethe Institute.
