100 years of the Bauhaus

Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus in 1919 – and in doing so revolutionised architecture, design and the way we think about it. What influence does this art school have today? And what should everyone know about the Bauhaus? We answer the most important questions about next year’s anniversary.

Bauhaus and its History

bauhaus imaginista

The Bauhaus wanted to redefine the relationship between education, art and society. The Bauhaus shared this approach, which can be found in Gropius' Manifesto of 1919, with other movements in the 20th century, such as Japan and Russia. These international contexts are the focus of the bauhaus imaginista exhibition and event program.
