poster for "BAUHAUS experience, dessau" Exhibition

This event has ended.

Bauhaus began in Weimar in Germany as a school for design in 1919. Centered on Weimar, Dessau and Berlin, Bauhaus was forced to close down in 1933 with the rise of the Nazi regime. However, even 75 years after its founding, it continues to have a profound influence on design and architecture around the world.
This exhibition focuses on how Bauhaus was variously interpreted and appropriated during different periods of its history, and on the Dessau period in particular. During its short period of activity, concrete manifestations of the ideals of its founder, Walter Gropius, were constructed in Dessau. From his student work that shows the influences of his formative education, right up to his designs for stage sets, products from his atelier, drawings, and photographs, this show showcases the broad range of Bauhaus activities. The show also includes architectural sections, blueprints and diagrams, models and images.
The selection features a total of around 260 works, 241 of which are from the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation's collection. 146 of them will be exhibited in Japan for the first time.

そんなにデザインに詳しくない人でも、
「バウハウス」という名前は聞いたことがあるはず・・・。

個人的な事を書くと、
ワタシは建築を専攻するようになったのは、
移転後に、ここの校長となった
 ミース・ファン・デル・ローエ
の住宅を見たから…。

ミース、ブロイヤ、リートフェルトの
家具のオリジナルを見るのも興味深いが、
何よりも面白いのは、
「バウハウス」で行われていた教育の課題演習の
作品を眺めること。

あらゆる材料の質感・色彩・バランスを追及した
学生達の思い入れが手に取るように分かる。

グッズもポスターもおしゃれ☆
何気ない日常品も精密な実験と理論に基づいているのだなーと思いました。
