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.
Lived Visions and a New Era
A key aspect of the new beginning inaugurated in 1919 was the political emancipation of women. And so it is hardly surprising that at the same time as the Bauhaus, a group of courageous female founders in Hesse ventured their own creative experiment: the Loheland colony. Numerous events, from North Rhine-Westphalia to Berlin and from Saxony-Anhalt to Bavaria, are celebrating this and other pioneering achievements of an international revolution with far-reaching social consequences.
Rethinking the World
A reduced formal idiom, a radical break with traditions and a new, liberated attitude to life: the Bauhaus combines great ideas and daring experiments in art, architecture and design. Although the Hochschule für Gestaltung existed for only 14 years, it has an international impact to the present day.
[Translate to English:] Drei Mal Leben in der Moderne
A centenary that is not only dedicated to the Bauhaus, but also to modernism, would not be complete without the German of Frankfurt am Main. During the big Bauhaus year three exhibitions are devoted to the former imperial city, which would become synonymous with modern urban planning in the 1920s.
On the timelessness of a workshop of the future
The funding phases of the “Bauhaus Today Fund” financed by the German Federal Cultural Foundation in the scope of the centenary programme “Bauhaus 2019” vividly demonstrates the diversity of contemporary perspectives on the Bauhaus.
