How does the Bauhaus relate to the contemporary global world? Dive into the world of bauhaus imaginista: read, look and collect texts and images and print out your personal Bauhaus research to take home with you.
Key projects such as the Bauhaus Manifesto by Walter Gropius (1919), ein bauhaus film by Marcel Breuer (1926), the drawing Carpet by Paul Klee (1927) and the film Reflektorisches Lichstpiel by Kurt Schwerdfeger (1922) form the starting point in bauhaus imaginista for an investigation into the topicality of Bauhaus themes, such as pedagogical innovation, design debate, non-Western material cultures, and experimental image practices.
The travelling presentation bauhaus imaginista is a project of Bauhaus Kooperation Berlin Dessau Weimar, Goethe-Institut and Haus der Kulturen der Welt within the context of the Bauhaus centenary.
