The exhibition opening on August 22, 2019 includes an opening reception and talk by Kristin Bartels, Curator at the Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum für Gestaltung.

In 2019, Germany is celebrating the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus, together with partners worldwide. The Bauhaus – School of design that only existed for a total of 14 years has continued to have a lasting effect up until the present day.

The Bauhaus.Photo exhibition features 100 key works from the collection of more than 70,000 Bauhaus photos held by the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung in Berlin – the largest such collection in the world. The exhibition provides an insight into the many facets of Bauhaus photography and life at the Bauhaus.

As one of the twentieth century’s most avant-garde schools, the Bauhaus was founded by the architect Walter Gropius in Weimar in 1919. It relocated to Dessau in 1925, and was closed in Berlin in 1933 under pressure from the Nazis. Many Bauhäusler were forced to leave Germany. Some of them came to America, where their ideas fell on fertile ground. For all those interested in architecture and design, the Bauhaus offers countless associations and points of contact. The Bauhaus workshops gave rise to modern design objects aimed at a new way of life –from everyday items to residential buildings. Many of the designs, particularly those in the fields of furniture-making and architecture, have since acquired historic importance.

Presented as part of a series of programs by the Getty Research Institute, the Goethe-Institut Los Angeles, A+D Museum, and WUHO Woodbury University Hollywood Outpost that will unravel at multiple venues over the course of the year. “Bauhaus at the Getty” includes the exhibition Bauhaus Beginnings, the film series Bauhaus on Screen, and the digital project Bauhaus: Building the New Artist. The Goethe-Institut Los Angeles will present the interactive exhibition Virtual Bauhaus at A+D Museum and the photography exhibition bauhaus.photo at the WUHO Gallery.

Both Virtual Bauhaus and  bauhaus.photo are presented as part of Wunderbar Together: The Year of German-American Friendship 2018/19- an initiative funded by the German Federal Foreign Office, implemented by the Goethe-Institut, and supported by the federation of German Industries (BDI).
