Bauhaus in Weimar
Founded as the main art school of the early 20th century, the State Bauhaus was an artistic pioneer in 1919 and radical in many ways. The enthusiasm and "the fire of devotion" of the early years in Weimar are evident in many documents. Even today, Bauhaus design shapes our everyday life.
