The Bauhaus existed for only 14 years in Germany, but for 100 years its ideas have now been passed on and its products relaunched, imitated and further developed. Marking the centenary of the Bauhaus’s founding, the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung’s exhibition at the Berlinische Galerie is presenting famous, familiar and forgotten Bauhaus originals and recounting the history behind the objects. Around 1,000 exhibits will be on display: art and design from the Bauhaus-Archiv’s collection, exceptional loans from international collections and artistic positions which take a new look at the Bauhaus legacy.

The queues in front of the Berlinische Galerie will be long from 6 September. The anniversary exhibition “original bauhaus” will enable you to experience another highlight in the Bauhaus year until 21 January 2020. Based on 14 key objects, the exhibition explores the connections between idea and reception. The curator Nina Wiedemeyer gives you a first impression before the exhibition opens.
Why we need so much more than the Bauhaus
The Bauhaus movement in Germany, roughly 1919-1933, marked a major turning point for design and its role in society. It exerted a powerful and influential role in the development of artist style. But today, for many designers, it is more of a historical curiosity than a role model. Why? What has changed?
