Bauhaus and National Socialism were considered irreconcilable opposites until well after the Second World War. Influenced by the post-war reception, which set off the supposedly "good" and persecuted modernism against the criminal system, the illusion that the Bauhaus and all its members were per se immune to any Nazi ideology was able to persist for a long time. In the planned colloquium, the topic will be revisited and illuminated; 20 speakers will present their new research results.
The conference will also include a public evening lecture on May 24 with Götz Aly (Berlin), who will read from his latest book, "Unser Nationalsozialismus" ("Our National Socialism"). This will be followed by an opportunity for discussion. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Bauhaus Museum, Stéphane-Hessel-Platz 1, 99423 Weimar. Admission is free, but due to a limited number of seats, registration is requested by May 15, 2023 at: Email: email@example.com.
The detailed programme for the conference can be found on the website of the Klassik Stiftung Weimar.
