INSIDE THE MIND
— JUDITH HAASE

ARCHITECTURE

“For Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) there was no separation between her art and her life. She transformed her energy into sculpture. She was such a tiny fragile person but so strong in her mind and work. Her subjects were emotions and ideas and this stands for my thinking. I see my work as being like a sculptor and the way I approach space is the same.”

Architect Judith Haase gets her creative sustenance from many sources: fearless women, avant-garde theatre, the proportions of a tatami mat, and spaces where light is a defining element.

Co-founding the Berlin-based architecture and scenography studio AAS Gonzales Haase with Pierre Jorge Gonzalez, Haase’s approach has become reputable for a refined industrial aesthetic, presented across minimalist gallery spaces such as Gary Tatinsian Gallery, Moscow, and stores such as Balenciaga, Paris, and Andreas Murkudis, Berlin.

In Ark Journal VOL III Haase shares what informs and inspires her work, drawing us into her universe, and the catalysts that came to shape her practice.

“I met Robert Wilson when I was a 21-year-old architecture student and worked for him on the Watermill Center on Long Island, New York, until I turned 31. Bob was my mentor who shared his knowledge with me. He is energetic and creates an atmosphere around him that I never felt with anyone else. He combines performance, dance, acting, painting, architecture, light, sound and even furniture design in brilliant ways. In theatre he creates images that touch and open my mind.”
