100 years of Bauhaus

The City and Bauhaus: Forging Modernity Together

It was the feeling that a whole new era was beginning that drew the Bauhaus school from Weimar to the industrial town of Dessau. The Bauhaus operated here for seven years and made the town an internationally renowned centre of the modern avant-garde. Together, the city and the Bauhaus shared the vision of shaping the industrial modern age. In the centenary year of 2019, the town invites visitors to discover the story of the Bauhaus in Dessau and immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the 1920s.
