The free Bauhaus Dessau app accompanies visitors on an exploration tour through the Bauhaus city of Dessau. Whether before, during or after the visit – the app offers plenty of inspiration and information on the unique history of the Bauhaus.

Bauhaus Stadt

The interactive map “Bauhaus City” takes you to the original Bauhaus buildings and the Bauhaus Museum Dessau.

Bauhaus Fokus

The “Bauhaus Fokus” audio tours introduce visitors to the fascinating history of Oskar Schlemmer’s world-famous “Triadic Ballet”, Laszlo Moholy Nagy’s colourful light-space modulator and Marcel Breuer’s airy B3 club chair.

In addition, “Bauhaus Fokus” offers those interested the opportunity to discover everything worth knowing about the architecture and history of the historic Bauhaus school on a walk through the historic Bauhaus building.

In order to give as many people as possible access to the content of the exhibition, we also offer “Bauhaus Fokus” for deaf people at the Bauhaus Museum Dessau as a video format in German Sign Language (DGS). We also offer an audio-described version for people with visual impairments and blind people. A version in plain language is also available and is useful for many people who are learning German or find academic texts difficult.

Bauhaus Sound

A special feature is the work “Bauhaus Sound” by Berlin composer and sound designer David Kamp. The unique sound composition enriches the exhibitions and buildings with an experimental sound layer. The basis and sound material are acoustic miniatures on Bauhaus themes – developed from recordings of rooms, workshops, design objects and historical materials from the foundation’s building research archive.

Aktive Linie

The Bauhaus game “Active Line” uses augmented reality (AR) to visualise your own movement as a visible trace in space. In this way, visitors leave virtual traces in real space that can serve as inspiration for others to create their own movement art.
