Weimar: Rejoignez la fête du 100e anniversaire du Bauhaus


Bauhaus is celebrating it’s 100th birthday and BauhausLand throws parties throughout the year!

Weimar: join the 100th birthday party

An avant-garde chair; a stylish cradle; a ground-breaking painting: no surprise international critics are excited by what is on show at the new Bauhaus Museum Weimar. With its opening on April 6th, celebrations for the centenary of the Bauhaus architecture and design movement got off to a flying start. Some 18,000 visitors from around the world joined the festivities on the opening weekend; throughout the year, special events are continuing right across BauhausLand, first and foremost in Dessau and Weimar. To discover more about the movement that changed the world, join the party!

Museum treasures

Start with the new Bauhaus Museum Weimar in the city where the Bauhaus began. Designed by German architect Heike Hanada, this elegant concrete cube is home to some of the world’s most treasured examples of Bauhaus art and design.
The first Bauhaus director Walter Gropius left Weimar a collection of 168 Bauhaus objects, from furniture and metalwork to ceramics. These are regarded as the backbone of the museum’s display.

Today, the collection – including objects by former students and professors of The Bauhaus – has risen to a proud number of 13.000 exhibits.

Innovative then: still modern now

Treasures on show include one of only three original Barcelona MR 90 chairs, designed by Mies van der Rohe for the 1929 Barcelona World’s Fair. The chrome-plated steel, with button stitching on the leather upholstery, was revolutionary! Equally iconic is Peter Keler’s geometric cradle. His decep-tively-simple 1922 design was based on a blue circle, a yellow triangle and a red square. Significant paintings include Lyonel Feininger’s Gelmeroda XI. See this Cubist interpretation of the Gelmeroda church, only 2.5 miles from Weimar. Then drive or cycle out to see the real thing.

The first Bauhaus house

Set in an elegant park, the Haus am Horn is the first example of a Bauhaus-influenced home. This compact, cubic house, where rooms overlooked an inner courtyard, was designed by Georg Muche for the first Bauhaus exhibition in 1923. It was developed as a prototype for mass production. Haus am Horn reopens to the public on May 18th.

Party like it’s 1920!

Bauhaus birthday celebrations run all year. On Saturday June 22nd, the Thu-ringian Dance School hosts a Bauhaus-inspired Summer Ball in the Weimar Hall, with theater, opera, comedy, and dance. On Saturday August 10th , the Fest am Platz: The Bauhaus for Everyone event in front of the Bauhaus Museum Weimar is all about family fun and involvement; on the weekend of September 26th-29th , the Triennale der Moderne marks the links between the three UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Modernism: Weimar, Dessau and Berlin.
