The Bauhaus: A Redeeming Requiem

In an act of self-assertion, Mies van der Rohe, together with its teachers and students, closed the Bauhaus in Berlin on July 20th 1933. This is now over 85 years ago. The greater the distance to the happy, historical times of the Bauhaus, however, the more expectation and longing for its presence and timeliness rise. Is the radiant Bauhaus inventiveness still alive or has it long since mutated into an omnipresent yet zombified museum that's being ridden to death? After taking a critical inventory of the Bauhaus' ideas in its jubilee year, we want to pause for a moment and throw a combative farewell party in the form of a grand concert laden funeral: The fiercest update of the great Bauhaus accepts its temporary suspension in order to protect itself against general ossification.
