Exhibition
The Art of Joining:  Designing the Universal Connector

The international participants of the Bauhaus Lab 2018 investigated the historical context and discourses of transatlantic postwar modernism bundled in the metal connector. The three month long research, which included excursions for on-site investigation and archival study, is culminated in an exhibition in the Bauhaus Building. Its grid system juxtaposes the virtual three-dimensional grid that General Panel System inscribed in space with the DIN norms, the contemporary paragon of standardization. The findings are displayed in thematic chapters, revolving around different spatial constellations the connector brought together.

Staging the Bauhaus: John Cage's "Europera 5"

20:00 Uhr

The annual theme 2018 of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, Standard, is the occasion to re-stage John Cage’s Europera 5 on the Bauhaus Stage.

“For 200 years, Europeans have sent us their operas. Now I'll send them all back."
This is what John Cage wrote about his Europeras.

In this work, Cage breaks through the norms of the European opera world of the 18th and 19th century. He not only subjected the music to a random generator, but also the stage sets from dozens of operas, props, lights, dance figures and the operatic aria. Cage did not compose any of the Europera's notes in the true sense of the word, but worked with the material of other composers. The random, uncontrollable combination of music creates new, incalculable references. Europeras is regarded as Cage's biggest and most radical music theatre work. Europeras is now rarely performed.

The annual theme 2018 of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, Standard, is the occasion to re-stage John Cage’s Europera 5 on the Bauhaus stage.

It's time again! On 5 and 6 November 2018 the zdf@bauhaus concert series will be guest on the Stage at the Bauhaus Dessau for the 20th time.

The German broadcaster ZDF invites guests to a live concert twice a year. The stage is regarded as the heart of the Bauhaus building in Dessau. Its location in the centre of the building, but also its fundamental openness in the face of two different auditoriums, makes it a highly versatile and seemingly puristic point of creative focus. Here, where the Bauhaus band once played, the German broadcaster ZDF now invites guests to a live concert twice a year.

zdf@bauhaus is a tv show by German broadcasters ZDF and 3sat. Informations on artists and pre-sale tickets: zdfbauhaus.tvtmedia.de.
