This internationally traveling exhibition celebrates the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, a legendary German school that revolutionized the parameters of art, the crafts, and technology. While it existed for only 14 short years (1919-1933), its influence shaped modern thinking and artistic approaches to industrialization.
Bauhaus instructors included some of the most famous Modern artists and architects including Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius, Wassily Kandinsky, Josef and Anni Albers, Paul Klee, Lily Reich, and more. Many of the influential figures and others involved at the Bauhaus left Germany and spread the school’s lessons internationally. The exhibition The Whole World a Bauhaus, titled after a quote by student and teacher Fritz Kuhr, includes art and design pieces by select instructors and students as well as photographs and documents that convey the spirit of the Bauhaus. One hundred years after its founding, the modern ideals of the school spread the globe and are still integrated in today’s interdisciplinary approaches to the arts. More
