The “Weimar Time Window” media app accompanies you on a tour through Weimar during the modernist era. Around 1900 there were two sides to Weimar – one that venerated the classical age and was influenced by conservative thinking, and the other that embraced progress and the ideas of the European avant-garde. We invite you to learn about the important events, protagonists and sites of this fascinating era at eleven selected stations.
The journey into the past, entitled “Paths to Modernism” was developed in preparation of the exhibition “War of Ideologies. Weimar as a Symbol of German Culture before and after 1914” (1 August – 9 November 2014 | Neues Museum Weimar). Based on the content and central themes of the exhibition, the media guide presents the historical and conceptual developments of modernism at various locations in downtown Weimar.
The “Weimar Window of Time” offers users an innovative means to access history and highlights the historical significance of locations, squares and buildings in Weimar.
The app was developed as part of a school project in a collaboration between the Klassik Stiftung Weimar and the Federal Agency for Civil Education.
