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.

The design school is associated with experiments in form and colour, architectural icons and everyday design, lavish parties and minimalist designs. Walter Gropius brought the European artistic avant-garde to the city in 1919: Lyonel Feininger, Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer, Johannes Itten, Wassily Kandinsky and many more prepared to revolutionise our everyday life with their ideas. Even today, Bauhaus design shapes our everyday life.

Bauhaus 2023

This year, Weimar celebrates the 100th anniversary of the first Bauhaus exhibition. In 1923, the Bauhäusler showed for the first time how radically new design, building and living together was thought of at the Bauhaus.
