Exhibition: Bauhaus Beginnings
From 11th June to 13th October 2019, Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles, United States
DATE: 13/10/2019
“The Bauhaus was a German school of art and design whose brief yet highly influential existence rendered it a key site in the development of a new modern vision for arts education. Established in 1919 after the end of World War I, the Bauhaus sought to erode distinctions between crafts and the fine arts through a program of study centered on theory and practical experience.

Marking the one hundredth anniversary of the school´s opening, Bauhaus Beginnings investigates the school´s early commitment to spiritual expression, its innovative first-year curriculum, and its use of diverse media to introduce the work of students and masters to international audiences. The exhibition draws on the Getty Research Institute´s extensive collections related to the Bauhaus - including course exercises, teaching aids and notes, and rare prints, drawings, and photographs – to offer a colorful and surprising reexamination of the founding principles of this landmark institution.”
