Hammering, planing, sawing and weaving – it was pretty loud and dusty in the workshop wing of the School of Design, the Bauhaus Dessau. Although conceived as ‘laboratories for industry’, a great deal was still done by hand in the Dessau workshops.

The exhibition ‘Craft becomes Modern. The Bauhaus in the Making’ in the original setting, the weaving workshop in the Bauhaus building in Dessau, tells the story of the workshops from the perspective of craft. In the microcosm of workshop praxis, the exhibition shows the prevailing wide-ranging field of conflict in which craft at the Bauhaus was redefined as a utopia, albeit one that coexisted with industrial culture.

Opening times: daily 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Bauhaus Dessau
Admission: Bauhaus-Ticket 7.50 €, concessions 4.50 € 

(May 21st free Admission)

The time has come again to celebrate the birthday of the Bauhaus. Music, dance, the stage and debate – this year, the Bauhaus birthday celebrations will reflect the annual theme of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, “Substance”.

The magazine “bauhaus 9” is fresh off the press and packed with stories, interviews and photos. The magazine, its themes and its design, will be presented to the public in the presence of the editors and designers. In conversation with Rolf Kuhn, the first director of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, the history of the institution will be traced back to its beginnings in 1987. Dr. Claudia Perren and the Mayor of Dessau-Roßlau, Peter Kuras, will gratefully receive a gift of a letter of thanks written by Mayor Fritz Hesse, who brought the Bauhaus to Dessau in 1925, from his grandson, Wolf Hesse. Once again, we will look back at the work of recent months.

Just as the inauguration of the Bauhaus Dessau on 4 December 1926 was celebrated with a lavish party, on 2 December 2017 people will also be able to dance the night away. First, a guest appearance by the Anhaltisches Theater with “Staging the Bauhaus VII” will bring an exquisite concert to the stage in the auditorium: Johann Sebastian Bach’s “The Art of Fugue” (excerpts), Iannis Xenakis’s “Akrata for 16 Winds” and Béla Bartók’s “Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta”. This will be followed by a dance night to the lively sounds of the band Django Lassi with its blend of Klezmer, Balkan beats and swing.

Tickets are available from the Anhaltische Theater and at the box office.
