Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau, Philipp Oswalt

Philipp Oswalt


Above and beyond the Bauhaus, the city of Dessau was a culminating point of industrial modernity. Over the 13 years of the Nazi regime, the city experienced an unparalleled rise and fall which has marked it to this day. Dessau was an armaments metropolis, Gau capital, ›company town‹ for Junkers’ aircraft and engine factories, and the main production site of the poison gas Zyklon B, with which hundreds of thousands of people were murdered in the concentration camps.
