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.
From shoe last to Gropius’ Adler
Many of the young people that were influenced by the Bauhaus’ charisma to move to Weimar and Dessau, originated in the then constituency association of Lower Saxony. And therefore it is not surprising that the federal state with the same name contributes inspiring events on the legacy of modernism in Germany at the beginning of the big Bauhaus year.
Musical journeys and Christmas cards
All over the country the preparations for 100 years Bauhaus are running at top speed. While the advance ticket sale for the opening festival in Berlin has already started, the construction work in the three Bauhaus institutions Berlin, Dessau and Weimar has not yet been completed. The Bauhaus and modernism are already part of very diverse events elsewhere in the country.
How Bauhaus came to Palestine
Arieh Sharon, the father of Israeli architecture, trained his gifted students at Bauhaus. He and his colleagues, Genia Averbuch, Zeev Rechter and Dov Karmi, managed an unusual balancing act in the 1930‘s during the construction of the White City in Tel Aviv. Never again would the longing for a time long begone be expressed in such a modern way in the future.
