Exhibition: Bauhaus Beginnings
From 11th June to 13th October 2019, Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles, United States

“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.”
