Find out about this exciting and dangerous period in the history of Germany in today’s Insights event, part of the Philharmonia Orchestra's Weimar Berlin: Birttersweet Metropolis series.

After World War I, Germany was left in tatters. But 100 years ago a fresh constitution was signed in the cultural city of Weimar, beginning a new era in the life of the country and a period of wild artistic experimentation. Major new movements in music, art, architecture and film flourished, despite the political and social instabilities of the day.

Hosted by writer and broadcaster Gavin Plumley, this session gives you an in-depth look at Germany during the 1920s, surveying the music of Berg, Hindemith and Weill, as well as the work of the Bauhaus, which was founded in 1919, and the lure of Berlin for British writers and artists.
