Galerie VIVID presents:
Bauhaus 1919 2019
In this exhibition the complete series of 14 Bauhausbücher play a central row. In this books the vision of the Bauhaus school can be found. The influence of this school is ubiquitous even today. The exhibition will show this influence over the past 100 years.

The Bauhaus was founded in 1919 in the city of Weimar by German architect Walter Gropius. Its core objective was a radical concept: to reimagine the material world to reflect the unity of all the arts. Gropius explained this vision for a union of crafts, art and technology in the Programm des Staatlichen Bauhauses Weimar (1919), which described a utopian craft guild combining architecture, sculpture, and painting into a single creative expression [Gesamtkunstwerk]. Gropius developed a curriculum that would turn out artisans and designers capable of creating useful and beautiful objects appropriate to this new system of living.
