The Bauhaus existed for only 14 years in Germany, but for 100 years its ideas have now been passed on and its products relaunched, imitated and further developed.

Marking the centenary of the Bauhaus’s founding, the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung’s exhibition at the Berlinische Galerie is presenting famous, familiar and forgotten Bauhaus originals and recounting the history behind the objects. On the basis of 14 objects, the exhibition will develop 14 case histories: How did the woman sitting on the tubular-steel chair become the most famous anonymous figure from the Bauhaus? Does the Haus am Horn in Weimar have a secret twin? Why have the tea infusers which were created as protoypes for industrial production always remained one-of-a-kind pieces? “original bauhaus” will display art and design from the Bauhaus-Archiv’s collection, exceptional loans from international collections and artistic positions which take a new look at the Bauhaus legacy.

The centenary exhibition by Berlin’s Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung – in cooperation with the Berlinische Galerie – is supported by the federal state of Berlin and the German Federal Cultural Foundation.
