100 years ago, on April 1, 1919, the State Bauhaus was built in Weimar, which grew into one of the most powerful modern design and art schools. The Bauhaus existed for 14 years, between 1919 and 1933 in the cities of Weimar, Dessau and Berlin. The founder and first Bauhaus director was the German architect Walter Gropius.
For the first time, the Bauhaus brought art and craft together to revive handicraft - emancipated from industrialization. The artistic innovations included three areas: architecture, art and design. The Bauhaus is considered to be the cradle of the avant-garde and classical modernism, and still shapes the image of modernist trends to a great extent.
The status and prestige of the Bauhaus were also expressed by famous lecturers such as Josef Albers, László Moholy-Nagy, Marcel Breuer, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger, Gunta Stölzl, and Oskar Schlemmer, who taught at the school.
The ideas and designs that emerged at the Bauhaus were far ahead of their time. Bauhaus has become a brand, an association for a style as well as a defining synonym as part of the avant-garde and modern age. P>
