Bauhaus re:imagined

re:bauhaus – modern emancipation, education, exchange – is a transnational festival exploring the origins of Functionalism and Bauhaus in Central Europe, the political and societal conditions that gave rise to the movements, and how these are perceived today. The festival presents Central Europe as a cradle of modernism, an initiator of a transnational dialogue.

The reinvention of design

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.
