100 years of bauhaus: the Anniversary
A departure from conventional ideas and old lived-in worlds, a rethinking of art, architecture, design and pedagogics. With the Bauhaus, Walter Gropius founded in 1919 one of the seminal schools of design, which continues to serve as an inspiration today. Under the title ‘Reinventing the world’, on the occasion of the Bauhaus Centenary 2019 the Bauhaus Verbund 2019 in association with regional, national and international partners invited the public to rediscover the historical testimonies of the Bauhaus as well as the school‘s significance now and for the future. The centenary programme 100 years of Bauhaus provided the framework for this.

Projects of the Bauhaus centenary
The programme, which is unique to the German museum sector, launched in the 2016/2017 school year and ends in summer 2020. Over a four-year period, nine Bauhaus Agents joined 36 partner schools and the three Bauhaus institutions in Berlin, Dessau and Weimar to explore new horizons in cultural education and museum design.
The centenary was launched with an international festival, held from 16–24 January in Berlin. This focused on the production and presentation of works by contemporary artists in which the aesthetic explorations and experiments of the Bauhaus artists remain alive.
The Matter of Data
The project ‘The Matter of Data’ relates the migration history of so-called ‘Bauhaus Modernism’ to the logistics of exporting structural components and building materials from Germany to Palestine in the 1930s.
Triennial of Modernism
The ‘Triennial of Modernism’ began in Weimar on 26 September 2019. On three consecutive weekends, it enabled the public to experience and view the architectural heritage of modernism through tours, events and exhibitions.
Grand Tour of Modernism
From north to south, from east to west: The locations of the Grand Tour of Modernism will guide visitors through the past hundred years of the History of Modern Architecture.
The three-year international exhibition and events project researched the global networks of the Bauhaus in the context of the geopolitical changes of the 20th century. The project traced in various locations and by way of concrete examples the location-specific debates and design policies that adopted, translated and transformed the concepts and practices of the Bauhaus and gave rise to new institutions and reform movements in other locations.
