Pioneers of a new world

[Translate to English:] headline

Starting with the appointment of Walter Gropius to Weimar by the Flemish architect Henry van de Velde, to the obvious influence of Gerrit Rietvelds and the De Stijl group, to the personal teachings of such legendary modernists as Piet Mondrian, Theo van Doesburg or J.J.P. Oud at the Bauhaus: The impulses coming from the Dutch language area were essential for the progress of the expressionistic university to an epitome of functional design. The exhibition “netherlands ⇄ bauhaus – pioneers of a new world” at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen follows up on this productive relationship by looking at 800 original works and objects. An interactive preliminary course is an exhibition highlight. It let’s visitors experience the Bauhaus’ revolutionary pedagogics first hand. The exhibition runs through 26 May 2019.
