Bauhaus Jazz Exploration.
Jazz, Democracy and Freedom
The event will take place at a later date, the schedule will be announced soon.
Bauhaus Museum Dessau, Open Stage
This conference takes the 100th anniversary of the Dessau born jazz pioneer Günter Boas as an opportunity to listen to and consult with jazz musicians, publicists, jazz researchers and organisers on the relationship between jazz, democracy and freedom. From the Jazz Age in the 1920s – the time of the Bauhaus band and of Boas’ first encounter with Louis Arm strong’s music – to National Socialism, SED led socialism and German unity, the conference inquires into the political and social framework and roles of jazz. Lectures, workshops and concerts are offered in cooperation with the Musikschule Dessau, Dessau based musicians, Jazz-Werkstatt Berlin Brandenburg, JazzArchiv Eisenach and Musikhochschule Franz Liszt Weimar.
