New York, The Museum of Modern Art

The Bauhaus school of Germany, situated across the cities Weimar, Dessau and Berlin, was one of the most influential schools of avant-garde art in the 20th century, assembling artists, architects, and designers in a fascinating conversation about the nature of art in the modern age. In reconsidering the very form of contemporary life, the students and faculty of the Bauhaus made the school the venue for a dazzling array of experiments in the visual arts.

The exhibition brings together over 400 works that reflect the extraordinarily broad range of the school’s production, including industrial design, furniture, architecture, graphics, photography, textiles, ceramics, theater and costume design, painting, and sculpture. It includes works by famous faculty members and well-known students including Walter Gropius, the school founder, as well as Hannes Meyer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Josef Albers, Lyonel Feininger, Marianne Brandt, Vasily Kandinsky and Paul Klee.
