100 years of the Bauhaus : The diagonal of Dessau

On the next Saturday ", a 120 000 Nazis to Dessau. Anyway, there are brawls. The Bauhaus is expecting a few broken Windows.“ Approximately this scenario, the Bauhaus Dessau founded in the October of last year, his decision to have the punk band Fine cream fish fillet not occur. And it gave the radical left channel ZDF, the actual organizer, a house ban.

Not only the state Minister for Culture Monika Grütters was deeply frightened. Never, the impression could arise that the law was not sufficient to extremist pressure, in order to prevent a concert, warned you. The Public realized. The Bauhaus began in the year 2019 already two months ahead of schedule and with a distinctive slope to the Ghost. The snow of yesterday, or rather the avalanche of morning?

Also because of the political atmosphere in the country in the twenty years begins, allegedly, at the disturbing way the same. One speaks, primarily, of a back-to-back. But what a right-wing extremist pressure? What did not know Monika Grütters: The Dessau threat scenario consisted of a single Tweet: "Patriotic Köthen is planning to take action against the appearance." And that was all.

no, it's not 120 000 Nazis. This message is not from the autumn of 2018, it is from the June, 1932. The Bauhaus-Student Martin Hesse had communicated to his father Hermann Hesse, what was imminent. And as it is now, but interesting. "We, as the Bauhaus are a consciously apolitical place", and left the Bauhaus on the 18. October 2018, Reaffirming its cancellation, announced on the day of the freedom of art. What is an Institution that speaks so, of their own history-and-white? Especially since the Bauhaus itself arrived as half a political refugee in Dessau. It was 1925 before the verbal and pecuniary hostile to the Weimar city fathers spheres fled.

Hermann Hesse's youngest son, Martin, is studying in Dessau

The Foundation of the Bauhaus lives from history. To live by something you don't want to know, is a big Miss. Maybe the father-son can have a conversation in the house of Hesse, from 1932 as it is enlightening.

"The Nest seems to be no pearl", wrote Hermann Hesse, his youngest son, the Bauhaus-students Martin Hesse from Switzerland. Martin told his father that he will listen to abstract the form of apprenticeship with Wassily Kandinsky, but the difference between a stressed and an unstressed Diagonal still don't really understand. The Bauhaus was much too political, he wrote, to be able to completely abstract the form of teaching focus.

as early as 1932, the national socialists arrived in present-day Saxony-Anhalt to Power, and immediately requested the Bauhaus, this "stain on the soul of Dessau", this "Bolshevik stronghold" cancel. What was going through the city, was so, you could say, a tremendously stressed diagonal.

Andreas Mrosek might not have known that. "Eyesore Of Dessau"? "Bolshevik Stronghold"? The Dessau city Council of the AfD was at 17. October 2018, on the day before the Bauhaus granted to the ZDF, a historical classification of the phenomenon of effort the Bauhaus: "The world needs to build houses, the Bauhaus is a world heritage site. Germany needs the Bauhaus, and we, therefore, only right.“ Sounds, shall we say, intellectually, a little tentative, but not hostile.

the "vote with the country" is very important

Mrosek, who was Born in 1958, native of Dessau, formerly a Ringer at the BSG Motor Dessau, several times world champion in bench press in the weight category up to 125 kg, took the action and marketing plan of the Bauhaus Director Claudia Perren, without the consent note. But a question he had on the city Council session of 17. October Belongs to: "to marketing of the Bauhaus, that on 6. 11. here are the the extreme left of the group cream, fish fillet, fine cream fish fillet appearance ...?“ The "eyesore of Dessau", the "Bolshevik stronghold" was not the Bauhaus itself, but a Band. May be, the Bauhaus Director felt a multiple world champion in the bench press in the weight category up to 125 kg is not quite up to that, you agreed to the bewilderment of the AfD's immediately: "... I am at the Moment in consultation with the country and the ZDF, as this concert may be withdrawn."

The phrase "vote with the country" is very important, because who is the actual Bauhaus Director, Dessau-Familiar controversial. Some say, and the man is lock up behind Claudia. "The country," Rainer Robra (CDU), Minister of state, chief of the state Chancellery in Magdeburg, Minister for Europe. To him, the Federal and European Affairs of Saxony - Anhalt, as well as his media policy is the responsibility of, he is also the Minister of culture of the country, Chairman of the cultural Foundation of Dessau-Wörlitz, the Luther memorials, etc., not least of all, he is the Chairman of the Foundation Bauhaus Dessau. So you can't say directly that the man has no Power.

And a clear mind he had filet also to the appearance of Fine cream Fish. "The Bauhaus is expecting a few broken Windows," wrote Martin Hesse in 1932. Also Robra argued as a enervierter glass master, as well as "the principles and the integrity of the Bauhaus", the know incompatibilities. But it was because with the "principles and the integrity of the Bauhaus" to be compatible, a threat to declare, not stock, assisted by the former multiple world champion in the bench press in the weight category up to 125 kg? The Bauhaus Director and the Minister of culture of Saxony/ Anhalt succeeded in Dessau declare Asses as a place of ubiquitous right-wing up until about the borders of the Federal Republic of Germany, or, as already Hermann Hesse put it: "The Nest seems to be no pearl." The supposed threat of the concert from right would be so fleshed out: they came out of the Bauhaus.

father Hesse advises the son, from all, to stay out of this

Hermann Hesse advised his son in 1932, just stay out of the way. You're Swiss, in accordance with he let him know, in a sense, so You're, in a sense, by nature, neutral. The Claudia Perren Position, just that it is not a Swiss. I'm not, wrote Martin Hesse back, it was totally impossible: "You know, the Bauhaus community was formerly a trial Institute, mentally working with the revolutionary people." This is over and: Mies van der Rohe, the Director, was "a fabulous architect, but a reactionary man."

Mies van der Rohe has really done everything possible to save his Institute of the national socialists spared no consequences. Martin Hesse: "Mies called the riot squad and was the student representative to arrest." The student representation was to the left, to mitbestimmungsaffin. These were the messages from the may, 1932.

Martin Hesse Hermann Hesse in June: "You can feel the house is already pretty Nazi spirit. I think the Bauhaus for a better pilot, but with the revolutionary Association of it no longer has anything to do with that.“

26. July 1932: "Here the Nazis' atrocious behavior. The other day a shooting was in the vicinity, 1 of the man you stabbed.“ At some point, it would not have more to say anyway helped: I'm Swiss, I'm neutral! 8000 people formed a funeral procession cross by Dessau for this dead man, learned of Hermann Hesse. "Fabulous," added the Bauhaus-Student of the last days.

most of all he was on the Elbe, especially at high water. This is the spirit of anarchy. This is Punk. Actually, almost the whole of Dessau on the flooding area. And then the solitaire are there oak trees that still remain standing after each flood. So what there is only here, Martin Hesse loved you.

Oswalts rates are always stressed Diagonals

The vegetation of the solitary oak is sometimes also among the people, and for the credibility of institutions such as the Bauhaus, she is almost indispensable. You don't even want to imagine what Claudia Perrens predecessor, Philipp Oswalt, this defense would have responded to a hearty advocate of the Modern, the AfD-the city Council Mrosek.

Oswalt had made the Bauhaus a place for the city of Dessau; much of what will happen here this year, goes back to him, the Dessau building of a new Museum anyway. And, of course, the Bauhaus concerts of the ZDF, about one hundred and there were, up to now. Oswalts rates are always Diagonals stressed. Not only he had asked Robras resignation as Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Even the all-powerful influence of the party politics in these bodies of Evil.

Oswalts contract has not been extended for 2014 to the General and to his own amazement, national and international protests followed. "The basis of trust was destroyed," it said tersely from Magdeburg. Politicians, today, as yesterday, to appreciate the growth form of wind flüchtern much more than the oak trees.

Bauhaus Director Mies van der Rohe had tried to combine both, in the end in vain. Martin Hesse Hermann Hesse on 31. August 1932: "The Bauhaus is now, unfortunately, been closed by the Nazis." Martin Hesse left Dessau with the aircraft, student discount: 5, 80 Reichsmarks to Berlin.
