100 years after its foundation, it is said that the Bauhaus is alive and all the world is working to update it. But in the omnipresent abundance of design, its absence may be a liberating moment. It is time to say goodbye to the Bauhaus in order to be able to face the challenges of the present unbiased. For five years, projekt bauhaus has undertaken a critical inventory of the Bauhaus ideas, their utopian surplus, their immanent contradictions and their potential for the present.
On the occasion of the conclusion of projekt bauhaus, director and musician Schorsch Kamerun will stage the world premiere of “Das Bauhaus – ein rettendes Requiem”. This will be an aggressive farewell party in the form of a large concert funeral in the middle of the anniversary year.
Three weeks before the premiere, projekt bauhaus invites you on May 29, 2019, to lectures, discussions and performances in the Grüner Salon under the title “Ciao Bauhaus!” At a moment when the term Bauhaus seems to have become an empty empty phrase into which almost everything can be projected, the current social relevance of the Bauhaus is to be discussed. Is the Bauhaus idea really still alive? Has this been the starting point for central impulses from the recent past? Which ideas are still working and are these effects relevant for the future? What concepts do we have to say goodbye to today?
With Beatriz Colomina, Theo Deutinger, Tatiana Efrussi, Jan Kage, Schorsch Kamerun, Alexander Kluge (film contribution), Philipp Oswalt, Peter Richter, Antje Stahl, Marion von Osten and Mark Wigley.
A cooperation between projekt bauhaus and the Volksbühne Berlin. projekt bauhaus is supported by the ARCH+ Verein zur Förderung des Architektur- und Stadtdiskurses e.V., supported by the Fonds Bauhaus heute, the Kulturstiftung des Bundes, the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung, the Schering Stiftung and the Berlin Senate Administration for Culture and Europe.
