Republic of Spirits - The Bauhaus Festival of the Weimar Universities

The Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar will celebrate the founding day of the Bauhaus – 12 April 1919 – with a festival and Bauhaus-themed parties, elaborately designed, loved and celebrated by masters and students alike.


Entirely in keeping with these artist festivals, students from the two universities will stage a multimedia spectacle on the evening of 12 April 2019. Twenty rooms in the Fürstenhaus and in Henry van de Velde’s buildings will be transformed into stages for architecture, music, sound, projections and performance. The Tempel herrenhaus and Weimar’s Park an der Ilm will also form part of the overall work of art. Interdisciplinary student teams will create walk-in light-sound-space installations, offering entirely new interpretations of the Bauhaus history.

The »Republic of Spirits - The Bauhaus Festival of the Weimar Universities« is funded by Thüringer Staatskanzlei.
