Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus in 1919 – and in doing so revolutionised architecture, design and the way we think about art. What influence does this art school have today? And what should everyone know about the Bauhaus? We answer the most important questions about this year’s anniversary.
The Bauhaus strives to bring together all creative effort into one whole, to reunify all the disciplines of practical art - sculpture, painting, handicrafts, and crafts - as inseparable components of a new architecture.
In 2019, the famous German art school celebrates its great anniversary: the Bauhaus is 100 years old. For the three-part documentary bauhausWORLD, a film team travelled the world, meeting architects, artists, urban planners, doers and dreamers. With its social ideas and design principles, the Bauhaus can still provide answers to the challenges of our time today.
