Introduction by Dr Thea Brejzek

In order to celebrate the Bauhaus Centenary, the Goethe-Institut presents a comprehensive event-series that starts off with the documentary Bauhaus Spirit - 100 Years of Bauhaus by Niels Bolbrinker. This documentary will be co-presented by Palace Cinemas and is part of the German Film Fest 2019.

Against the backdrop of its 100th anniversary, this documentary portrays the fascinating history of Walter Gropius’ Bauhaus, one of our century's most influential architectural schools. Bauhaus made art, design and architecture political: How should we live together and how can rooms be designed in such a way that all people can be part of a community? These were the questions that Marcel Breuer, Paul Klee and Wasily Kandinsky discussed and the Bauhaus ideas still shape our society today.

Dr Thea Brejzek is invited to hold an opening introduction for the first screening in Sydney. She is Professor for Spatial Theory at the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building at the University of Technology in Sydney, and a Director of the IKEA x UTS Furniture Living Lab. Thea is also a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of Bauhaus Dessau.
