School FUNDAMENTAL

Festival of Education

Reflection, practical critique and experimental renewal of the Bauhaus pedagogy.

The series begins with School FUNDAMENTAL, a festival of learning. As a school of design, the Bauhaus was less about classical education and more about the all-round development of character. But is there any validity nowadays to the paradigm of “learning by doing”, of “overcoming the fragmented individual” (László Moholy-Nagy) by unleashing the individual’s creative powers? The Bauhaus Building in Dessau, as a curriculum made manifest in a building with workshops, preliminary course room, auditorium and canteen, provides the ideal point of departure for the festival.

Get together at the Bauhaus Dessau

15:00 Uhr

Comprehensive programme with concert, music, readings and action. The neighbourhood festival is part of the action day "Dessau-Roßlau für Demokratie und Weltoffenheit" of the "Netzwerk Gelebte Demokratie" on 9 March.

On Saturday, 9 March 2019, the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation will offer a comprehensive program on the Bauhausplatz at the Bauhaus Building – with a concert for 7 and more car horns, music, readings, button machine, "Joint poetry of responsible citizens for a Bauhaus building as text work" following an exercise by László Moholy-Nagy to participate, a search for traces through the Dessau of the 1920s and 1930s between Bauhausplatz and Seminarplatz, and many opportunities to be creative. The donations for drinks and food will be donated to the Anhalt-Hospiz.

The neighbourhood festival is part of the action day "Dessau-Roßlau für Demokratie und Weltoffenheit" of the "Netzwerk Gelebte Demokratie" on 9 March. For years right-wing extremists have used the anniversary of the bombing of Dessau on 7 March 1945 for their marches. As a sign against intolerance and exclusion, we are setting a programme for everybody. The Bauhaus in Dessau was and is an international and open place. It is this diversity that made the Bauhaus remarkable. In 1932 the Nationalsocialists closed the Bauhaus in Dessau and forced it to dissolve itself in Berlin.

The organisers reserve the right to deny access to the event to persons belonging to right-wing extremist parties or organisations, belonging to the right-wing extremist scene or who have already appeared in the past through racist, nationalist, antisemitic or other inhuman statements, or to exclude them from the event.

A colourful signal against right-wing extremism and for tolerance!

Come and send a colourful signal against right-wing extremism and for tolerance, cosmopolitanism and diversity!

The Bauhaus Dessau Foundation and Netzwerk "Gelebte Demokratie" will jointly call on Saturday, 16 March, starting at 1 pm, for a human chain at the Bauhaus Building. According to the motto "Farbe(n) bekennen", it is to become a human chain with coloured cardboard boxes.

The human chain is part of the activation against the demonstrations by neo-Nazis and right-wing extremists. For years, they have been using the time around the anniversary of the bombing of Dessau on 7 March 1945 for their historical instrumentalisation. It must be considered probable, however, that the neo-Nazis will march past the Bauhaus with their elevator on March 16, 2019, in contrast to what has been known so far.   

We are sending a colourful signal against intolerance and exclusion!
