Find out more about this exciting and dangerous period in the history of Germany, a time of wild experimentation when new movements in music, art, architecture and film flourished.

Hosted by Series Adviser Gavin Plumley, the Insights Day surveys the music of Berg, Hindemith and Weill, as well as the work of the Bauhaus, the lure of Berlin for British writers and artists, and the city's gay subculture. Gavin is joined by Peter Parker, biographer of Christopher Isherwood, and Theresia Enzensberger, author of Blueprint, a novel set in and around the Bauhaus. 

Discussions are interspersed with live music from the Philharmonia's MMSF Fellows.
