100 years | of Bauhaus .
Paid partnership @germanytourism It all started 100 years ago in Weimar, Germany, where Architect Walter Gropius founded the influential art movement. Yesterday, I started a three-day photo trip touring the 3 cities that flourished during the 14 years the school existed before it proved too ‘progressive’ for the Nazis in 1933.
The Weimar school closed down in 1925 and moved to Dessau because the city of Weimar became increasingly conservative during the 1920s and the politicians thought the school was too avant-garde.
100 years after the closure, the city of Weimar finally got a museum to celebrate the Bauhaus in Weimar next to the huge Nazi-era Gauforum buildings.
The new minimalistic concrete museum is designed by the German architect Heike Hanada. The concrete box showcase more than 1000 objects produced during the six-years period and is worth a visit if you are in the area.
