This one school, it's still resonating
Has the Bauhaus left behind a trail of light, like the task of the foundation-course exercise at the university in Weimar? We asked eight friends, critics, organisers and participants of the Bauhaus centenary to provide a brief summary.
Leave Behind a Trail of Light!
One of the foundation-course exercises at the Bauhaus Dessau was to “Leave behind a trail of light”. We pick up the thought as a way of asking friends, critics, responsible organisers and participants of the Bauhaus centenary celebrations for a brief summary. Eight perspectives on a nationwide celebration of Modernity, defined by festivals, dialogue, a call for responsibility and new perspectives.
Cellar finds and workers’ palaces
In the winter weeks ahead, we need all the highlights we can get. So we’ve compiled a whole list of exhibitions presenting Bauhaus treasures that were considered lost – after removing a thick layer of dust. There are also exciting piles of files, innovative lamps and audacious structures. Enjoy!
100 Years of the Bauhaus in 365 images. A video collage of the highlights, curiosities, amazing fringe events, extensive debates and encounters. Our way of saying thank you!
Countless New Ideas
In just a few weeks, the great Bauhaus celebration that has excited us all year will draw to a close. The anniversary ends on December 31. What can we take from it? Annemarie Jaeggi, Museum Director of the Berlin Bauhaus Archive, gives her assessment, along with Claudia Perren, Director of the Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau, and Wolfgang Holler, Director of the Museen der Klassikstiftung Weimar.
All in Rotation
From Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker to Verner Panton, and from Gropius to Ricarda Huch: this November, you can discover a host of exciting personalities from a different perspective. And there’s also music and dance, as well as readings, guided tours and installations.
