Bauhaus Festival-Week 2021

// Festival
Bauhaus Building + Bauhaus Museum Dessau

// Festival
Bauhaus Building + Bauhaus Museum Dessau

This year, the Bauhaus Festival Week thematises the annual theme "Infrastructure" metaphorically and associatively as "Connecting Games".  
With installations and performances, dance and music performances as well as a film series, art and the festival are understood as cultural and social infrastructure that bring people together in ways that are not commonplace. In this way, guests at the Bauhaus Festival can experience and in part help to create "connection games" that arise between the strict geometric Appia stage and passionate tango, between music, acrobatics and architecture, or between the art figures of the "Triadic Ballet" and new Bauhaus cuisine.
