The Whole World a Bauhaus
Fri, 25.10.2019, 7 pm CEST

The Bauhaus was founded 1919 in Weimar, Germany. Between the spirit of new beginnings and the threatening rise of nationalism, the Bauhaus established itself in just 14 years and became a symbol of modern design and an avant-garde way of life.

Designs originating in this period are still produced today. But how did the Bauhaus manage to become such an innovative force in design and teaching, and in societies? The ifa exhibition »The Whole World a Bauhaus« is devoted to this theme in two parts. 

The exhibition title is programmatic: »The Whole World a Bauhaus« is a quotation from Bauhaus student and teacher Fritz Kuhr (1928). It alludes to the fact that the Bauhaus redefined the parameters of art, crafts, and technology, when Walter Gropius declared the aim of design to include the whole spectrum of design and also social practice in every sense.
