100th Anniversary of the Founding of Bauhaus come to bauhaus!
- the basis of education in art and design

The Bauhaus, art and design school was opened by architect Walter Gropius in 1919 in the richly historical German city of Weimar. This school, with its very experimental spirit, created a transformation in art and design education and left a great legacy in art history. Today, even after 100 years since its opening, the Bauhaus influence still continues to resonate. Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and other eminent artists who helped define their era were Bauhaus teachers who fostered some of the best designers and architects. Bauhaus artists created designs that ushered in a new age in various fields that included products, graphics, and architecture. Particularly unique at the school were the approaches teachers used in the basic education classes that students first received upon matriculation. What sort of courses were offered by Kandinsky, Klee, and other faculty members. This exhibit looks first at the basic education classes each teacher taught at the Bauhaus. We then introduce the rich array of art emanating from the Bauhaus workshops into which students advanced, including furniture, metalworking, ceramics, textiles, printing / advertising, set design, and more. On this 100th anniversary of the school’s opening, we would like to share with everyone the wealth of creative possibilities brought about by the Bauhaus unique approach to teaching. Under Nazi oppression, the school was forced to close in 1933, cutting its history short at just 14 years. Nevertheless, the Bauhaus has continued to wield influence worldwide in the fields of art and design. Four students from Japan (Takehiko Mizutani, Iwao Yamawaki, Michiko Yamawaki, and Tamae Ohno) studied at the Bauhaus and returned home to spread the spirit of the institution. This exhibit gathers together various works and materials of these four and highlights Japan’s ties with the Bauhaus.
