Follow the Bauhaus into the world!
World Wide Open
The Bauhaus was many things – but never just German. Its idea lives throughout the world and countless Bauhaus protagonists themselves took it to a wide range of countries and established it there. So it is no wonder that Modernity plays a role abroad even after the Bauhaus centenary. We have compiled the events in Australia, England, Israel and Japan for you.
Monuments for the free spirit
If you automatically think of Israel with respect to the Bauhaus and the Middle East, you probably paid attention at school. But there is also plenty of Modern architecture to discover in the Arab world.
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.
Bauhaus projects around the world
From Weimar to Rotterdam, from Tel Aviv to Chicago: Bauhaus was always a global phenomenon which reverberated around the world. The anniversary programme 100 years of bauhaus accordingly pays tribute to this. The international programme for the jubilee was presented for the first time in all its facets at a well-attended new conference at the ITB in Berlin, headed by Bodo Ramelow, the state premier of Thuringia and chairman of the Bauhaus Association 2019.
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.
