The German Symphony Orchestra of Berlin will make a guest appearance in the Museum for Musical Instruments with a “Notturno Extra” and presents two works that play an important role in the musical life of the Bauhaus.
Bauhaus was founded in Weimar by 1919 by Walter Gropius as an art school. Its mission was to develop innovative ways of living for a more humane society, to design functional and affordable products in a formal language of great clarity. Bauhaus remains the 20th century`s most influential school of art, architecture and design, even though it existed only for 14 years. Fort its last two years before its eventual closing by the Nazis it resided in Berlin. 100 years of Bauhaus in Berlin will feature a colorful programme which we have put together for you on the pages below.
