100 years of Bauhaus and the Bergstrasse

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus movement, the town of Zwingenberg has organised a special cultural program together with various partners from the region. On three weekends, one each in September, October and November, a light installation will be projected on the facade of BRAIN’s premises, visible for both visitors and passersby. This illuminated artwork will be flanked by musical events, discussions on architecture and art exhibitions on the company’s campus and at other locations in Zwingenberg.

100 years of Bauhaus

The Staatliches Bauhaus art school was established in Weimar, Germany in 1919. This subsequently evolved into a world-famous school of architecture, design and art in the German town of Dessau. Bauhaus was the expression and forerunner of an international Modernist movement that has maintained a profound influence on architecture, art and design up to the present day. This influential current stands for a combination of interdisciplinarity, a love of experimentation and innovation that still inspires us today.

The idea behind the initiative

The “Bauhaus and the Bergstrasse” initiative arose from the conviction that art, culture, science and the economy are cross-pollinating. The town of Zwingenberg, the Kulturstiftung für die Bergstraße (a foundation that promotes the arts in the Bergstrasse region) and BRAIN have created a series of events that showcase the region and its creative potential. This was facilitated with the kind support of the State Ministry for Higher Education, Research and the Arts of the State of Hesse, the Sparkassen-Kulturstiftung Hessen-Thüringen (cultural foundation of the German Savings Banks Finance Group Hesse-Thüringen), Sparkasse Bensheim, the energy provider GGEW and BRAIN itself.

Bauhaus architecture

There could be no better place to reflect the ethos of the Bauhaus movement than the building that houses the BRAIN complex, a listed industrial building that was formerly home to the Fissan factory. On one weekend each in the months of September, October and November, part of the biotechnology campus will be transformed into an illuminated artwork that was specially developed for this series of events by internationally acclaimed artist Helga Griffiths.
