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.
“It’s striking! You have to hear us – you’ll be thinking of us.”
From the rhythmical noise of the Bauhaus band to the inspiring art of the fugue, to the performances of contemporary composers: Life at the Bauhaus was always accompanied by background music, though it was not even on the curriculum.
Bauhaus is a household name in the general public
Since ten years the photographer Jean Molitor has travelled all over the world to capture modernism’s architectural testimonies for posterity. His archive against decay documents both Bauhaus icons and many unknown treasures. On the occasion of his exhibition in Chemnitz – which includes many regional buildings – we spoke to him about 100 years bauhaus and 10 years bauh1haus.
Pioneers of a new world
What would the Bauhaus be without the Dutch? An exhibition that opened last weekend in Rotterdam answers this question. The influence of Dutch artists, designers and architects on the new start-up was so immense that it would easily be possible to think that the Bauhaus would not have become the Bauhaus without them.
The Bauhaus in Oldenburg: avant-garde in the province
The city of Oldenburg and the Oldenburg State Museum have a unique Bauhaus past that is no reflected in iconic buildings as in other places, but as of April, invites you on an exciting visit of the exhibition at the Augusteum. Thus Oldenburg will be a central and nationally visible location during the Bauhaus centenary 2019.
[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.
