Dramatic experimenting with space, movement, color, light and sound.

The Bauhaus movement began in 1919 when the German architect Walter Gropius founded the art school Staatliches Bauhaus with a vision of bridging the gap between art and industry by combining crafts and fine arts. 

Many associate Bauhaus solely with architecture and design, but music and theatre comprised an important part of the connection with space, movement, color, light and sound. In a post-war-Europe, the new relationship between man and technology was put to the test. 1921 Walter Groupious founded a workshop for live performance at the school. Here, the protagonists of Bauhaus searched for new, meaningful relations within the dynamic and increasingly technical environment humans were living in.

With this in mind, abstract studies of body, movement, atmospheric machines and theatrical mechanisms were executed.These stage experiments also played a role in the social arenas: Bauhaus parties were hosted, where the group collectively played out the part of the new human.  

This exhibition wil show very rare material from artists like Xanti Schawinsky, László Moholy-Nagy and Oskar Schlemmer, in addition to reconstructions of the costumes used in Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballet (1923) - one of the most popular performative works from the period.

The exhibition includes a performance programme to be announced.

Organised in collaboration with The Bauhaus Dessau Foundation.
