Follow the Bauhaus into the world!Back to previous page
Avant-garde at the Waterkant
Muntin windows, brickwork and ceramics are part of Hamburg’s architectural DNA. But the Hanseatic city also has its Bauhaus buildings: rectangular, white and panorama-paned with rounded terraces – although Hamburg’s Bauhaus world is not all stone and glass. The avant-garde has also left its traces and still inspires young creative people today. Learn how and where in our tips for Hamburg in June.
A breath of fresh air for the refined
Summer is simply not a time to lounge around at home. Perhaps you are yearning to travel and make new discoveries as much as we are. We’ve put together a programme that combines the open air with the Bauhaus. Be playfully inspired in Quedlinburg and Gotha, explore the Rhineland while tracing the footsteps of Mies van der Rohe, ramble through the Loheland or enjoy pleasant dreams in a very special Berlin bedroom. We even have something in store for you should you stop off in Rome on your way south.
Discovering Beauty in the Commonplace
Our partner state of Brandenburg offers you many opportunities in May to experience the Bauhaus, its history and its stories with all your senses: in the Bauhaus-Labor, by looking at commonplace objects, by taking part in debates and discussions, and in the ceramics workshop of one of Germany’s most influential artists.
Between Now and the Remembered
In May you can experience the Bauhaus anchored strongly in the present –
or plunge into its glorious past. In today’s world, young creatives occupy the public realm in a playful and experimental manner and challenge traditional ideas about urban life. A look at the past brings forgotten women artists, style-defining textiles and the buildings of modernism into focus.
Global Resonance Spaces
How, one hundred years after the founding of the Bauhaus, can culture be rethought as a social project? And how does the design school continue to inspire visionary practices and discourses today? The curators of bauhaus imaginista Marion von Osten and Grant Watson discuss with art historian Mona Schieren the Bauhaus’s transnational relationships, correspondences, and migration stories, and its relevance for an art, design, and education of the future.
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.
