The Bauhaus, one of the most most widely recognized modern artistic movement of the 20th century, is celebrating its 90th year, and Berlin is organizing an exhibit entitled “Bauhaus: A Conceptual Model.” The exhibit is being organized by Germany’s three main Bauhaus institutes, the Bauhaus Archive Berlin, the Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau and the Klassik Stiftung Weimar, with assistance from the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The exhibit includes nearly 1,000 objects, including models, paintings, photos, and furniture. The items demonstrate the varied design ideologies encompassed by the Bauhaus (Expressionism, Cubism, Constructivism, etc.) and give viewers an idea of its progression following its founding in 1919 by Walter Gropius. Gropius envisioned a unity between art and technology at the outset of the Bauhaus, and its influence spawned countless significant movements within the creative community. The 90th anniversary exhibit pays homage to this influence and brings the Bauhaus to the public.
