Berlin, Martin-Gropius-Bau

In celebration of the 90th anniversary of Germany’s Bauhaus movement, the country’s three Bauhaus institutions will, for the first time, unite to present possibly one of the most comprehensive exhibitions of one of the most influential schools of creativity of the 20th century while, around the city, a cultural program supports this seminal show.

A Conceptual Model focuses on the impact the Bauhaus made on the development and global spread of modernity, and its influence on art, design and architecture from its inception, up to the present.

Early masterworks by Feininger, Klee and Kandinsky and Walter Gropius’s famous “Gropius Folder”, presented to the director for his 41st birthday are major highlights. Rare and unknown works also finally see the light of day, such as Reinhold Rossig’s “Draft of a Socialist City” and Marcel Breuer’s first Club Chair, which was considered missing for more than nine decades – a departure from the hallmark steel style for which the designer was best known.
