The film Dessau – Eine Stadt ändert sich (“Dessau – A Chang­ing City”) documents the pro­cess of creating the Bauhaus Museum Dessau and the asso­ciated changes from the per­spective of residents. In a documentary film workshop led by the Bauhaus Agents pro­gramme, students living in Des­sau­-Roßlau recorded what in­trigued them about their city, which places mattered to them and what role the Bauhaus and the new Bauhaus Museum Des­sau played for them over the course of a three­-year period. The resulting personal footage forms the basis for the docu­mentary. Protagonists who lived or worked in the immediate vi­cinity of the construction site were also accompanied during the filming.
