Answers to nowadays still current questions How to build? How to reside? How to live? Were sought after by the Werkbund groups of various countries in the interwar period. The exhibition in the Weissenhofwerkstatt uses select examples from the Werkbund exhibition settlements in Stuttgart, Brno, Wrocław, Zurich, Vienna and Prague to show which innovative solutions were found at the time.

The five locations of the European Union received the European Cultural Heritage Seal in 2020 under the title “Werkbundsiedlungen in Europa 1927-1932”. The route to the award is also part of the current exhibition.

How to build? How to reside? How to live?

In the interwar period, the Werkbund branches of various countries sought answers to these questions, which are again relevant today. The exhibition in the Weißenhof workshop uses a selection of Werkbund estates in Stuttgart, Brno, Wrocław, Zurich, Vienna and Prague to show the innovative solutions that were found at the time. The five locations within the European Union received the European Cultural Heritage Seal in 2020 under the title “Werkbundsiedlungen in Europa 1927-1932”.

Sound – Body – Space. Le Corbusier’s Modulor and Music
17.07.2022

7:00 p.m – 8:30 p.m, Brenzkirche

In collaboration with the flautist Prof. Stephanie Winker and Leipzig based artist NK Doege, the Weissenhof Museum has developed an exciting concert to conclude this year’s summer festival on the Killesberg. The concert will refer to Le Corbusier’s work “The Modulor”, in which he put into words what affected him throughout his life: the search for a simple system of proportions based on the human body, that could be used anywhere in the world in order to design harmonious rooms and buildings. In this Le Corbusier draws on mathematics and music in numerous instances. “Music is, as with architecture, time and space. Music and architecture depend on measure.” For Le Corbusier rhythm, intervals and the golden ratio were means of getting closer to his goal of a more harmonious world.

For the concert, NK Doege designed installations based on Le Corbusiers Modulor. In these the three musicians, Marta Klimasara on drums, Panu Sundqvist on cello and Stephanie Winker on flute will play they respecive instruments. They respond with works of music by Bach, Xenakis and Globokar to texts read from Le Corbusier’s works of writing.

We would like to thank the Wüstenrot Foundation and the Cultural Office of the City of Stuttgart for their financial support.

Flyer Sommerfest

On July 17, 2022 it’s finally that time again: We and our neighbors are going to celebrate our annual summer festival on the Killesberg. As always we were able to put together a colourful program to let you participate in the versatility of the Killesberg. In addition to the Weissenhof Museum, the State Academy of Fine Arts, the Architekturgalerie am Weißenhof, the Killesbergbahn and the Bismarkturm, as well as the Augustinum Stuttgart and the Killesberghöhe will take part. Information on the complete program can be found on our event website.

On this day the Weissenhof Museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.: Admission is free. Every hour on the hour between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. we will offer guided tours in German through the Weissenhofsiedlung. From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. there will be drinks, cake and live music with the Götz-Sommerfeldt Duo (guitar and double bass) on the front porch of the museum.

In the evening we would also like to invite you to a concert in the Brenzkirche at 7 p.m.: “Sound – Body – Space. Le Corbusier’s Modulor and Music”. The concept for this concert was developed by the professor and flutist Stephanie Winker, the Leipzig artist NK Doege and the director of the Weissenhof Museum, Anja Krämer. Pieces of music by Bach, Xenakis and Globokar will be performed within installations by NK Doege, supplemented by quotations on measure and harmony from Le Corbusier’s work “The Modulor”.

Long Night of Museums
21.05.2022

Do you remember how the Long Night of Museums had to be canceled at short notice two years ago due to the emerging corona pandemic? And also could not take place last year either? Now we are really looking forward to May 21, 2022 when we will be able to take cultured night owls on a nightly walk through the Weissenhofsiedlung again. Visitors get to know the settlement in a completely different way: in night-time lighting and with original quotes from 1927, the year it was built. Among others, the participating architects Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Mart Stam and Le Corbusier will have their say. The O-Tone night tours will take place every 45 minutes from 6:30 p.m.

Unfortunately, it won’t be possible to visit the interior of the Weissenhof Museum, instead we offer cold drinks, pretzels and – of course – exciting insights into Stuttgart’s modernity.

Participation will only be possible with a valid ticket for the Long Night of Museums. For more information please visit www.lange-nacht.de

We are looking forward to seeing you!
