This small display celebrates 100 years since the establishment of the Bauhaus and features key Bauhaus-related objects from the Museum’s collection. Established in 1919 in the town of Weimar, Germany, the Bauhaus was the most influential school of art and design in the 20th century. Although it closed in 1933 amidst the political turmoil of the Nazi era, the Bauhaus redefined the role of design in society, introducing interdisciplinary design concepts and teaching. Central to the school’s philosophy was the unity of art, craft and architecture, and the designer’s role as an agent for change.
