On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the State Bauhaus in Weimar, the Klassik Stiftung Weimar presents the grand opening of the new Bauhaus Museum Weimar in April 2019, showcasing the treasures of the world’s oldest Bauhaus collection. As a place of open encounter and discussion, the museum highlights the early phase of the most influential school of art and design of the 20th century, tying its history to questions of how we envision our living environment today and in the future.
„How will we live, how will we settle, what form of community do we want to aspire to?“
Walter Gropius in a speech on the Bauhaus ahead of the Stuttgart Building Exhibition, 1924
The exhibition “The Bauhaus Comes from Weimar”centres around the key issues, ideas and design proposals of the Bauhaus and its significance in our life today. The Bauhaus was a place of experimentation in the free and applied arts, design, architecture and education. Based on the question “How do we want to live together?”, the exhibition highlights key issues which are just as relevant today as they were in the Bauhaus era.
