As it is not felt that the Bauhaus is welcome in Weimar any longer, it moves to Dessau. In the period that follows, architectural projects are realized in Dessau such as the new university building and the model housing development.

The erstwhile General of the Imperial Army and former head of the OHL Paul von Hindenburg is elected as Reichspräsident in the second round of voting. Hindenburg wins with 48.3% of the vote against Wilhelm Marx (45.3%) and Ernst Thälmann (6.4%).
Hindenburg’s candidacy was a reaction by the conservative parties, which united to form the “Reichsblock” for the presidential elections, to the decision by the Weimar Coalition parties to join forces in the “Volksblock” and name former Reichskanzler Marx as their candidate.
