Exhibition: The Whole World a Bauhaus
This internationally traveling exhibition celebrates the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, a legendary German school that revolutionized the parameters of art, the crafts, and technology. While it existed for only 14 short years ( Protected content ), its influence shaped modern thinking and artistic approaches to industrialization. Bauhaus instructors included some of the most famous Modern artists and architects including Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius, Wassily Kandinsky, Josef and Anni Albers, Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy, Lily Reich, and more. Many of the influential figures and others involved at the Bauhaus left Germany and spread the school's lessons internationally. The exhibition is divided into eight different chapters: Art, Crafts, and Technology; Floating; Community; Encounters; The Total Work of Art; New Man; Radical Pedagogy; and Experiment.
