The Wind Don't Blow One Way All the Time
Early Modernist Statement Piece
This piece projects a statement about the gender discrimination that was endured by women studying at the Bauhaus. For an institution trying to break away from age-old traditions, it put women into craft-oriented workshops largely consisting in the weaving and textile department. "The wind don't blow one way all the time" is a wistful summation of a life affected by circumstances beyond personal control. It not only spoke on personal and political sufferings from the Nazi regime, but also of hope and trust in new beginnings. The weaving in the back and the use of plexi and wood all coincide with the materials that were being used at the Bauhaus.
