Panel Utopie Hellerau

Hellerau Festival Theatre, its origins and significance can only be understood in the context of the inspired utopian design by the entrepreneur Karl Schmidt and his partner Wolf Dorn. HELLERAU inextricably linked different elements of a social and utopian experiment (all employees of the German workshops worked and lived together in Hellerau Garden City, acquiring speculation-resistant real estate and property), new forms of production and design (New Objectivity), revolutionary models for the stage, movement and education, visionary architecture and ultimately utopian social designs (the “back to nature” Lebensreform movement). This panel aims to plumb the depths of this utopian space and examine what it means for the present day.
