100 Years of Bauhaus
In 2019, the Goethe-Institut Chicago will be celebrating the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus, together with partners in the Midwest. Founded in Weimar in 1919, relocated to Dessau in 1925 and closed in Berlin under pressure from the Nazis in 1933, the school of design only existed for a total of 14 years. All the same, the legendary Bauhaus – School of Design has continued to have a lasting effect up until the present day.
