Bauhaus Cooperation Berlin Dessau Weimar – Network of Modernism

The Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum of Design, the Klassik Stiftung Weimar and the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, Germany’s Bauhaus research institutes and museums, are working together under the title “Bauhaus Cooperation Berlin Dessau Weimar”. Its first highly successful project was the 90th anniversary exhibition “Modell Bauhaus”, held in 2009 in the Martin-Gropius Bau, Berlin. In 2010, the exhibition was shown in MoMA, New York.

In 2012, the Bauhaus Cooperation published the Bauhaus Travel Book, with accompanying app, about Bauhaus sites in Germany and worldwide. For the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games, the Bauhaus Cooperation realised the highly successful exhibition “Bauhaus: Art as Life” in collaboration with the Barbican Art Gallery.

The initiative “Triennale der Moderne” (Triennial of modernism), launched in 2013 and held in Berlin, Weimar and Dessau in 2013, 2016 and 2019, focuses on the global legacy of architectural modernism in Germany. The project is the first step on the way to the Bauhaus Centenary Year 2019. From 2015 under the motto “Die Welt neu denken” (Rethinking the world), this will feature a wide-ranging joint programme of research projects and transnational exhibitions on the global history and impact of the Bauhaus.

In 2016, the web portal went online.
