Bauhaus Archive - Bauhaus in Motion

For the last time before construction work begins on the museum’s expansion in 2018, the Bauhaus-Archiv is presenting highlights from the Bauhaus Collection. We will utilise this occasion to take the multifaceted theme of movement as a guiding principle leading through the presentation. This theme will be traced among works from the preliminary course (motion studies, for example) and also from all of the workshops (including architecture, furniture, ceramics, metals, painting and graphic arts, among others). Photographs attest to the movements demanded of Bauhaus students and staff: these resulted not least from the Bauhaus’s own relocations from Weimar to Dessau and Berlin, and they also extended to the point of exile. World-famous Bauhaus teachers (Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer, László Moholy-Nagy) as well as numerous students are represented.
 
The exhibition will be on view until October 9, 2017
