100 Years of Bauhaus
In 2019, Germany will be celebrating the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus, together with partners worldwide. 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.
Bauhaus Student Newspapers
In the spirit of celebrating Bauhaus centennial, the IIT Institute of Design’s student group mediaID and students of the School of the Art Institut of Chicago produced two Bauhaus newsletters. These are collections written, photographed, designed, and curated by students. Here, they reflect on the influence of the Bauhaus, examining its relevance and impact today while also looking toward the future.
