Bauhausfestival minimal
Box Play

19:00 Uhr

>> Bauhaus Museum Dessau

>> Bauhaus Museum Dessau

The Bauhaus Festival 2020 becomes the Bauhaus Festival minimal. But it is not a "Bauhaus Festival light". The Bauhaus Festival 2020 is only different – and adapted to the current situation caused by the Corona pandemic. Visitors can expect a concentrated festival atmosphere and work with reduced technical means, exclusively inside the building. The workshop wing, the festive area, the bridge, and the north wing will be part of a large Box Play. "Silent Guides" lead the guests along a one-hour parcours through one part of the building at a time. Several parcours combined result in a complete evening. As in the building set game, guests can put together their own Bauhaus Festival 2020.

Due to the Corona pandemic, the number of guests is limited. Participation in the Bauhaus Festival minimal. Box Play is therefore only possible with tickets. (For organisational reasons there will be no box office.)

Open Monuments Day 2020

>> historical Bauhaus Buildings
Free admission

>> historical Bauhaus Buildings
Free admission

The Open Monuments Day 2020 will renew the focus on the preservation and protection of monuments. These are im­ portant issues for the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation. The Bau­haus buildings are, after all, considered icons of modernism and almost 100 years old. As prototypes that had Bauhauslers experiment with ma­terials extensively, they are not easy to maintain. Specialist knowledge in monuments con­servation is needed.

Free admission to the historical Bauhaus buildings (Bauhaus Building, Masters' Houses,  Konsum Building). The free ticket is only available at the ticket counters.
