As one of the twentieth century’s most avant-garde schools, the Bauhaus was founded by the architect Walter Gropius in Germany in 1919. Although it existed for only 14 years (before closing under pressure from the Nazis in 1933), the aesthetic and philosophy continued across continents and generations and remains relevant today in designs from everyday items to furniture to architecture.
As part of an international celebration of the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus, the Bauhaus.Photo exhibition features 100 key works from the collection of more than 70,000 Bauhaus photos. The exhibition provides insight into the many facets of Bauhaus photography and life at the Bauhaus. The opening reception features a talk by Kristin Bartels, Curator at the Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum für Gestaltung.

Opening reception on Thursday, August 22, 6 pm. The exhibition will run through September 21, 2019.
