Bauhaus Verbund

In 2019, Germany, in association with partners all over the world, will celebrate the centenary of the foundation of the Bauhaus, one of the twentieth century’s most resounding cultural triumphs. With its international character, the Bauhaus remains twentieth century Germany’s most incisive and successful export. The Bauhaus is of the world, but it is from Germany.

Founded in 1919 in Weimar, moving to Dessau in 1925 and closed down by the National Socialists in Berlin in 1933, it has however left it mark far beyond these historic sites in the federal states of Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt and in Berlin. The Bauhaus forged a veritable topography of ideas, which yielded for instance the Weissenhof Estate in Stuttgart, the ADGB Trade Union School in Bernau or the Fagus-Werk in Alfeld.

In 2012/13, the federal states of Baden-Wuerttemberg, Berlin, Brandenburg, Lower Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia came together to form the association “Bauhaus Verbund 2019” in order to be duly prepared for the centenary celebrations, held in association with the three Bauhaus research institutes and museums: the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung, Berlin, the Klassik Stiftung Weimar and the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation. Since then the federal states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saxony, Hamburg and Hesse associated. The centenary year should become a national celebration with international impact.
