"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.
