In 2019, the Goethe-Institut Chicago will be celebrating the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus, together with partners in the Midwest. Founded in Weimar in 1919, relocated to Dessau in 1925 and closed in Berlin under pressure from the Nazis in 1933, the school of design only existed for a total of 14 years. All the same, the legendary Bauhaus – School of Design has continued to have a lasting effect up until the present day.
The era of boredom is over, there are almost no more people and the biological species have been abolished. Dietmar Dath's novel takes place 500 years in the future, after liberation, in a world in which speaking and intelligent animals, the gente, have managed the transition of evolution from natural history to shaped history.
Check out all events we have planned for 2019! We will continue to celebrate the Year of German-American Friendship, commemorate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, discuss Dietmar Dath's Abolition of Species in ourEuropean Book Club, and much more.
From “Beloved Sisters” to “A Coffee in Berlin” and “Young Goethe in Love”, from “The Blue Angel” to “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”–We are celebrating German-American friendship with our partner Kanopy by bringing 50 German films to your screens.
