Discover the Bauhaus!
nhaften Künstlern bis zu Neu- und Wiederentdeckungen werden Geschichte und Geschichten rund um das Bauhaus lebendig.
December is providing all the Bauhaus one could hope for. You can dance at a ball, feel like a student in Weimar, immerse yourself in history with virtual reality, become creative and shine a great deal of light in the darkness. In any case, it will certainly be an enchantingly beautiful 12th month of the centenary.
The show goes on
We are of course life-long Bauhaus fans. How about you? Just in case, we present a healthy dose of Bauhaus events to get you through January 2020. Photography, feminism, ballet in the cinema, breathing exercises, utopia, mobility and dystopia – it’s all there for you to enjoy!
Avant-garde on a cake platter
Between 1920 and 1930, coffee crockery brought abstract art to the kitchen table. Why have such ceramics disappeared? And why does the art-historical canon reduce Modernity to the purist design principles of the Werkbund and the Bauhaus? The Berlin exhibition “Decoration as Trespass?” at the Museum der Dinge uses spray-decorated ceramics in search of answers.
From an experiment to world cultural heritage
Nothing exists without a context. That is true for the stories we tell each other and also the art and exhibitions that emerge out of them. The current touring exhibition “The whole world a Bauhaus” at the ZKM in Karlsruhe demonstrates how diverse an exhibition can be when it takes the context into account.
All in Rotation
From Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker to Verner Panton, and from Gropius to Ricarda Huch: this November, you can discover a host of exciting personalities from a different perspective. And there’s also music and dance, as well as readings, guided tours and installations.
Has the Bauhaus ruined our cities?
When the association “Historischer Neumarkt Dresden e. V.” invited to the 3rd Dresden City Building Symposium in the Bauhaus year 2019, their representatives stated in the invitation: “Today, uniformity characterizes our newly built neighborhoods and squares. They are not urban, they do not even claim to be urban. Whether they are created in China, Europe or America hardly matters anymore. Is that the fulfillment of a promise made by the Bauhaus?” Even 100 years after the founding of the Bauhaus, the battle for the city of modernity has barely lost any of its sharpness.
