100 years of bauhaus:
A break with traditional ideas and old ways of life, and a new way of thinking in art, architecture, education and society: when Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus in 1919, he established a school of design which still inspires today. In keeping with its motto ‘Thinking the World Anew’, the Bauhaus Association 2019 will join regional, national and international partners in facilitating a rediscovery of the Bauhaus heritage and its present and future significance. The Centenary programme 100 years of bauhaus provides the framework. Which themes of the Bauhaus are still relevant today? We are interviewing architects, designers, performers, visual artists, educators and sociologists about their perspectives on the world of tomorrow.
New museums, a big opening festival, a modernist trail across Germany, exhibitions and much more besides: read here about the highlights in the Centenary Programme.
From 16 until 24 January 2019 the opening festival for 100 years of Bauhaus at Berlin’s Akademie der Künste will invite visitors on a creative and experimental journey around the legendary Bauhaus stage.
The exhibitions and events in the bauhaus imaginista series will trace the impact of the Bauhaus and the responses it elicited in the context of major geopolitical shifts down the twentieth century.
Grand Tour of Modernism
From north to south, from east to west, the Grand Tour will guide visitors through a hundred places and a hundred years of modernist architecture.
Since the 2016/17 school year, nine Bauhaus Agents have been forging new paths of educational communication by teaming up with more than 30 partner schools and the three Bauhaus institutions in Berlin, Dessau and Weimar.
In 2019 the Bauhaus institutions in Berlin, Dessau and Weimar will stage three major exhibitions with unseen treasures, design classics and form experiments.
