“Modernism has Tradition in Thuringia”
During the big anniversary year Bodo Ramelow, Thuringia’s minister-president personally controls the faith of the Bauhaus Association 2019. We interviewed him on the sustainability of the centenary, the museification of the Bauhaus and a preliminary course for politicians.
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.
From Bauhaus to a School of Schools?
Almost one hundred years after its founding, the Bauhaus, which began to revolutionize learning, has itself solidified into the sacred cow of design education. In order to expose the magical moment of disruption, curator Jan Boelen and his team were transforming the Istanbul Design Biennale 2018 into a huge field of experimentation for a necessarily restless and puzzled educational offensive.
Futuristic Sounds and the Seating Comfort of Modernity
Saxony, a long-established centre of art and culture, celebrates the Bauhaus Year with numerous exhibitions and events related to modernism. In the southeast Germany, the diversity of design is tangible everywhere, and in March , the Free State of Saxony will set exciting accents on themes that have not yet received much attention: from interior design to typography to music at the Bauhaus.
Topics that still set off sparks today
Experts from science, art, design and architecture were invited to the Academy of Arts in Berlin to partake in the critical discourse on 100 years of bauhaus. Selected impressions of a discursive event.
Criticism and Vision
How the members of Bauhaus and their successors were able to reflect on the legacy of the School of Design – this and other questions will be handled in three exhibitions in the State of Baden-Württemberg this coming autumn. Here the focus will be on the critical history of its impact and reception as well as on current urban-planning visions. An additional conference taking place in Stuttgart in September of this year will expand once more on these initial ideas.
