Exhibition “The Children of Bauhaus”

On the occasion of the Bauhaus centenary, this summer’s exhibition pays tribute to the innovations which that institution spearheaded – an extension of the design concept with interdisciplinary experimentation and alternative research gearing up for society’s future. Rare historical documents and objects by teachers and students of the Bauhaus as well as photos, films, and texts from its environment are placed in a creative dialogue with the methods and creations of those who have developed the Bauhaus spirit in subsequent generations: designers, artists, and architects such as Harry Bertoia, Nathan Lerner, Max Bill, Josef Albers, Charles Eames, Richard Buckminster Fuller, John Cage, Hans Gugelot, Ettore Sottsass, Donald Judd, and Olafur Eliasson.
