Understand the Bauhaus!

Two Rooms, Kitchen, Avantgarde
The Bauhaus in Hessen: Did something deserving this name exist in the Weimar Republic? The answer could be “Yes, but...”. This especially applies to Frankfurt am Main which attracted attention in parallel with the Bauhaus. The “New Frankfurt” was the second centre of departure next to Dessau from 1925 onwards. Not an aside of the Bauhaus, but a real star on its own and with its own energy.
Bauhaus is a household name in the general public
Since ten years the photographer Jean Molitor has travelled all over the world to capture modernism’s architectural testimonies for posterity. His archive against decay documents both Bauhaus icons and many unknown treasures. On the occasion of his exhibition in Chemnitz – which includes many regional buildings – we spoke to him about 100 years bauhaus and 10 years bauh1haus.
The Bauhaus in Oldenburg: avant-garde in the province
The city of Oldenburg and the Oldenburg State Museum have a unique Bauhaus past that is no reflected in iconic buildings as in other places, but as of April, invites you on an exciting visit of the exhibition at the Augusteum. Thus Oldenburg will be a central and nationally visible location during the Bauhaus centenary 2019.
