Bauhaus, a modern movement? The ‘Modernism v.s Conservatism’ theme continues

Citizens warmly invite you to join us for a documentary and discussion evening on Wednesday, 22nd January, when we will follow up on ‘The 20s in Berlin’ documentary evening with a film about Bauhaus. The Bauhaus style became very influential in Modernist architecture and modern design. It was originally a school founded with the idea of creating a “total” work of art in which all arts, including architecture, would eventually be brought together.

However, this institution was closed in 1933 when the Nazi government claimed that it was a center of moral degeneration and communist intellectualism. Despite this, the style flourished as people continued to spread its idealistic precepts as they left Germany and emigrated all over the world. Do similar movements exist today? Where can we witness groups or collectives who want to improve society by combining art, architecture and politics? These questions are examples of the topics we will discuss during the evening. It is also a great opportunity to find out more about our organisation and the work we are doing as we will also provide information how to become a member and the projects we are currently developing. 

The event will be held in Citizens of Europe offices, Kiefholzstr. 2, 4th floor. Contact Mattias or Avril for queries, questions or directions.
