MAKE WALLS TALK!

8. GENIUS LOCI WEIMAR FESTIVAL 09.-11. AUGUST 2019

 

The competition is open until the deadline of Sunday 07 April 2019.

 

In 2019, Genius Loci Weimar will be dedicated to two particularly noteworthy anniversaries: the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus and the centenary of the Weimar Constitution, the first parliamentary-democratic constitution on German soil.

Both of these events were epoch-making in their own way and they remain as unforgotten as they are tangible in everyday life. The Weimar Constitution’s concrete and explicit commitment to inalienable fundamental rights such as gender equality was decades ahead of its time, a fact that is underlined by the prevalence and topicality of these issues still today. The same is true of the Bauhaus, which used its visionary power to turn a simple manifestation into a set of creative principles, against a background of revolutionary and disruptive media that ultimately served to reinforce their validity.
