App „Bauhaus Dessau“
The app "Bauhaus Dessau" accompanies you on an exploration tour through the Bauhaus city of Dessau.
Discover the Bauhaus Dessau
with new media possibilities
The app developed by MicroMovie Media GmbH leads with an interactive map to the original Bauhaus Buildings such as the master houses, the Bauhaus Building or the employment office of Walter Gropius. The new Bauhaus Museum of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation is also represented with current service information, events and site plans.
Places in the Bauhaus Building that are otherwise only accessible as part of guided tours can also be experienced via the app: 360-degree panoramas show the auditorium with stage, the refectory, Walter Gropius' former director's room, a historic student room and the roof terrace of the studio building in which the students were housed.
A very special feature is the work "Bauhaus Sound" by Berlin composer and sound designer David Kamp (studiokamp.com). The unique sound composition adds an experimental level of sound to the exhibitions and buildings. It comprises over 100 sound elements from which an infinite sound composition is created. The basis and sound material are acoustic miniatures on Bauhaus themes – developed from recordings of rooms, workshops, design objects and historical materials from the Foundation's building research archive. The audio elements are randomly re-combined time and again – so every listener listens to a completely individual composition. An atmospheric sound backdrop of noisy and musical sounds, created by knocking, painting and rubbing glass, metal and stone, the pure spatial atmosphere of the master houses and accompanied by fragments of Bauhaus poems.
