Funkhaus Weimar – Nietzsche on Air A Musical Expedition in Search of the «New Man» The call for a «New Man» was part of the original Bauhaus philosophy, the purpose of which was to achieve a new, rational art form. In this, the faith in technical progress strangely fused with spiritual and esoteric forms of expression.
On the eve of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, we return to the former Nietzsche Memorial Hall which embodies both the history of this development and its catastrophic conclusion. Designed around 1910 as an homage to Nietzsche, the commemorative site was finally built by the Nazis in 1937, housed the Soviet secret service for a short time, and was used as a radio station from 1946 to 2000.
Live music, electronics, sound and text documents – from Nietzsche to contemporary philosophical manifestos – converge in various stations on a tour of sound installations and musictheatrical scenes.
