bauhaus music weekend 2024

About bauhaus music

Bauhaus and music – a combination only few have fully appreciated. And yet, the first guest event at the Bauhaus in Weimar in 1919 was dedicated to music, and many more musical performances followed. When the school opened its doors to the public for the first time in 1923, music played a significant role. Famous composers like Igor Stravinsky, Paul Hindemith and Ferrucio Busoni were invited to the five-day Bauhaus Week in Weimar in 1923 to witness the performance of their works which opened the exhibition.

With its interdisciplinary research project bauhaus music, the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung has been exploring the relationship between the Bauhaus and music since 2021.

The second edition of the bauhaus music weekend will take place in fall 2024 as a festival that celebrates the musical life and work at the Bauhaus.

Further information on the upcoming event follow soon.
