Outline

Bauhaus 100
The Bauhaus was established as a school of design by the architect Walter Gropius in 1919 in the historic German city of Weimar and celebrated its 100th anniversary last year. Despite only being active for 14 years before its enforced closure due to Nazi repression in 1933, it was full of experimental spirit and revolutionized education in the world of art and design, where its enormous impact can still be felt to this day.

Unique classes with extraordinary teachers
Iconic artists of the era, including Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky, worked as teachers at the Bauhaus, educating outstanding designers and architects and leading to the creation of groundbreaking designs. The lessons in the preliminary course with which the students began their training were particularly unique.
Brilliant works from the Bauhaus
This exhibition provides an opportunity to discover and experience part of the lessons given by different teachers, with a focus on the preliminary course. It also features about 300 works and materials from various studios, including examples of metalwork, pottery, textile, furniture, printing, advertising and stage performance.
