The Bauhaus existed for only 14 years in Germany, but for 100 years its ideas have now been passed on and its products relaunched, imitated and further developed. Marking the centenary of the Bauhaus’s founding, the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung’s exhibition “original bauhaus” at the Berlinische Galerie is presenting famous, familiar and forgotten Bauhaus originals and recounting the history behind the objects. Around 1,000 Bauhaus originals from the Bauhaus-Archiv’s collection will be on display, as well as exceptional loans from international collections and contemporary artistic positions.
The richly illustrated exhibition catalogue contains interviews and essays by Christian Demand, Magdalena Droste, Mercedes Valdivieso, Matthias Noell and Anna Henckel-Donnersmarck, among others.
