Bauhaus Museum Dessau, Open Stage
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.
