That was 100 years of Bauhaus
Under the title ‘Reinventing the world’, on the occasion of the Bauhaus Centenary 2019 the Bauhaus Verbund 2019 in association with regional, national and international partners invited the public to rediscover the historical artefacts of the Bauhaus as well as the school’s significance now and for the future. The centenary programme 100 years of Bauhaus provided the framework for this.
Triennial of Modernism 2022
The motto for the 2022 event year was ‘Living.Work.Life.’ The festival on modernist architecture and world heritage sites took place on three consecutive weekends starting September 30 in Berlin, Weimar and Dessau.
The programme, which is unique to the German museum sector, launched in the 2016/2017 school year and ended in summer 2020. Over a four-year period, nine Bauhaus Agents joined 36 partner schools and the three Bauhaus institutions in Berlin, Dessau and Weimar to explore new horizons in cultural education and museum design.
Grand Tour of Modernism
From north to south, from east to west: The locations of the Grand Tour of Modernism guided visitors through the past hundred years of the History of Modern Architecture.
From 2018 to 2020 the international exhibition and events project researched the global networks of the Bauhaus in the context of the geopolitical changes of the 20th century. The project traced the location-specific debates and design policies that adopted, translated and transformed the concepts and practices of the Bauhaus and gave rise to new institutions and reform movements.
The centenary was launched with an international festival, held from 16–24 January in Berlin. This focused on the production and presentation of works by contemporary artists in which the aesthetic explorations and experiments of the Bauhaus artists remain alive.
The Matter of Data
The project ‘The Matter of Data’ related the migration history of so-called ‘Bauhaus Modernism’ to the logistics of exporting structural components and building materials from Germany to Palestine in the 1930s.
Triennial of Modernism 2019
The ‘Triennial of Modernism’ began in Weimar on 26 September 2019. On three consecutive weekends, it enabled the public to experience and view the architectural heritage of modernism through tours, events and exhibitions.
To commemorate the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, this comprehensive publication lavishly illustrated with more than 300 images re-examines and re-evaluates the history and impact of the school of art.
