Passages Bauhaus – City Installations in the Public Domain

Artistic interventions that play with the spatial connection of the Bauhaus and the city.

A dot becomes a line and the line becomes a surface. Students of the Peter Behrens School of Arts in Düsseldorf start with Wassily Kandinsky’s movement study, combine it with choreographies by William Forsythe, and create on this ground three dimensional objects in the city’s public domain.

The project Passages Bauhaus – City  invites visitors of the Bauhaus centenary 2019 to experience the stretch of way between the Bauhaus Building, via the main station and the Anhaltische Theater to the Bauhaus Museum Dessau in an interactive way.

Architecture RADICAL

The historic Employment Office stages contemporary questions about the social role of architecture and its radical and experimental approaches.

The festival Architecture RADICAL chose Walter Gropius’s historic Employment Office because the relatively unknown building models the Bauhauslers’ grasp of architecture as a manifestation of social change. The festival refers to this desire for renewal, to the (seemingly) uncompromising realisation of powerful ideas. Not every experiment was successful, but they were daring, systematic, visionary and controversial. The festival takes the historic Bauhaus Buildings as a starting point for explorations.

Free Radical Tours

The 1,000 UNESCO natural and cultural heritage sites in 163 nations worldwide have included the Bauhaus sites in Weimar and Dessau. Cultural heritage is regarded as evidence of past cultures and artistic masterpieces, the decay of which would be an immense loss for humanity as a whole. The Bauhaus and its Sites in Weimar and Dessau have been included on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1996. In the year 2017 the UNESCO decided to expand the World Heritage Site to the Houses with Balcony Access in Dessau and the The Former ADGB Trade Union School in Bernau by Hannes Meyer.

Radical Tours: Guided tours to less well-known Bauhaus locations

UNESCO World Heritage Day 2018 prompts the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation to foster public understanding of the Bauhaus in Dessau in the context of its significance as a World Heritage Site. Visitors can discover the original Bauhaus buildings free of charge and engage in current issues of building and living as part of the Festival Architecture Radical. On 1 and 2 June, free Radical Tours will take you to less well-known Bauhaus locations and link classicist modern Dessau with the Gartenreich of Dessau-Wörlitz. The participants will learn more about the radical design approaches, models of thought and attitudes behind the prototypical buildings.

Admission free to all Bauhaus buildings.
