The work of the late Swiss artist “Xanti” (Alexander) Schawinsky (1904–1979) was until recently almost inaccessible. A long legal dispute and the fact that Schawinsky's work as a teacher was so integral to his artistic praxis (rather than only presenting his work in galleries and exhibitions), explain why much of his oeuvre is to be found in just one location today. In his lifetime, Schawinsky was mainly known for his work in the theater department at the Bauhaus. In the 1930s, while teaching at Black Mountain College, a legendary art college in North Carolina that provided refuge for many European emigrants during the Nazi era, Schawinsky, building on his Bauhaus work, developed his dramatic theory known as “Spectodrama.” Involving multimedia productions that examine elementary phenomena such as space, motion, light, sound, or color from scientific, technical, and performance-based perspectives, it represents an early form of the “happening,” which would later be made famous by another affiliate of the same institution, John Cage
