100 years of bauhaus: the Anniversary

A departure from conventional ideas and old lived-in worlds, a rethinking of art, architecture, design and pedagogics. With the Bauhaus, Walter Gropius founded in 1919 one of the seminal schools of design, which continues to serve as an inspiration today. 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 testimonies 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.

The three-year 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 in various locations and by way of concrete examples 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 in other locations.
