Republic of Spirits, Republik der Geister!

The Weimar Universities' Bauhaus Festival

Friday, 12 April 2019, starting time 6 p.m.

On 12 April 2019, exactly 100 years after the founding of the State Bauhaus, the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar and the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar are celebrating the great »Bauhausfest« together.

The »Republik der Geister, Republic of Spirits!« saw thousands of guests stroll though both universities‘ buildings discovering new things. The rooms evolved through performances, art, concerts and music, light, sounds and installations. Students, instructors, alumni, and university employees of both universities joined forces to create this symbiosis. Relaxing sound oases, interactive colour games, acoustic room installations, mobile phone sounds performed, or an inaccessible den – guests were treated to a party that flickered into the next morning.

The Bauhaus Festival of the Weimar Universities was funded by the State Chancellery of Thuringia.
