»Republic of Spirits« – an evening of cascading images and impressive scenes

On 12 April – exactly 100 years to the day since Bauhaus began – Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, in collaboration with University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar, celebrated their joint large-scale Bauhaus festival. The »Republik der Geister, Republic of Spirits!« welcomed thousands of guests, all of whom experienced a very individual and unique evening: the atmosphere at the 30 locations was distinctive, there was constant movement in the two main buildings and at Park an der Ilm. The Republic rooms became stages for performance, concerts and music, light, sound and installations, with the atmosphere in a state of perpetual transformation. Live recordings of mobile phone ringtones, interactive, moving sound objects, relaxing sound space havens, and an inaccessible dive bar – guests enthusiastically celebrated a shimmering festival until the early hours.
