100 Years of the Bauhaus in 365 images. A video collage of the highlights, curiosities, amazing fringe events, extensive debates and encounters. Our way of saying thank you!
Mysticism and Mazdaznan
Modern, technically talented young people designing practical objects for an enlightened world: the fact that the Bauhaus was founded in Germany no doubt further strengthened its reputation, since both the Bauhaus and the country are internationally regarded as unemotional, rational and focused on reason.

Utopia and disappointment
The keynote lecture by Prof. em. Dr. Lucian Hölscher was a highlight of this year’s “Weimar Controversies”. The former teacher at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum impressed with his profound and entertaining thoughts on “Utopia and disappointment. 100 years of the Bauhaus”. Reason enough for us to publish his lecture.
She was one of the most outspoken critics of the Bauhaus: Baroness Mathilde von Freytag-Loringhoven loved Post-Impressionism and despised Modernism. A current exhibition in Weimar is dedicated to the life and work of the animal psychologist, painter, actor and journalist.
