In 1923, Georg Muche radically rethought construction and living with the Haus Am Horn in Weimar. Now the house is close to its original state again – and publicly accessible.
What's new in the West?
Artists where attracted to the Bauhaus due to the diversity of forms, formats and means of expression – not only in the initial years. Until today the invitation to experiment, to think freely and creatively is a strong source of inspiration for young creative people. Their creativity is based on multimedia, networking, working as a collective or in pairs. And thus they transport the Bauhaus from the present to the future.
Back to the Future
By April 12th, we collect and publish quotes and statements by renowned creatives and young artists: personal perspectives, critical voices, and reflections on Bauhaus relevance. And we look back to the beginning in Weimar and the new Bauhaus Museum.
Free Spirits, Artists and a new Museum
Thuringia: the cradle of all things Bauhaus. The events hosted by our Bauhaus association partner state in April are characterised by the euphoric mood of the time, the love of experimenting and the joy of debating.
A new Bauhaus Museum for Weimar
In 2019 when the whole world is celebrating the founding of the Weimar State Bauhaus 100 years ago the most important date for Weimar and the city’s visitors will be 6 April. On this day the Bauhaus Museum Weimar will open after a three-year construction period. The Bauhaus Museum Weimar is creating a modern meeting-space in an open environment conducive to discussions. Located at the founding place of the Weimar State Bauhaus, it will evoke the early Weimar phase of the most important school of art and design of the 20th century. The exhibition is centered around the oldest collection of Bauhaus objects worldwide and combines the history of the Bauhaus with questions of current and future ways of living together.
Bauhaus projects around the world
From Weimar to Rotterdam, from Tel Aviv to Chicago: Bauhaus was always a global phenomenon which reverberated around the world. The anniversary programme 100 years of bauhaus accordingly pays tribute to this. The international programme for the jubilee was presented for the first time in all its facets at a well-attended new conference at the ITB in Berlin, headed by Bodo Ramelow, the state premier of Thuringia and chairman of the Bauhaus Association 2019.
