  • The Bauhausa school of art, design and architectureoperated in Germany from 1919 to 1933. The school adhered to the avant-garde ideology that all of the arts should be brought together to create a material world suited to the new reality of modern life. This radical mission, and the many remarkable creations of the Bauhauslers, ensured the school’s position as the most influential institution in the development of 20th century modernism.

  • The Bauhaus legacy is preserved and exhibited at the Bahaus-Archiv in Berlin. The Bauhaus has also been the subject of countless exhibitions at museums around the world. In 2019, the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus was celebrated with an international roster of events. 

    In posters for Bauhaus exhibitions, designers have borrowed and updated the graphic language favored by the Bauhaus—grid-based compositions with sans serif typography (letters without end strokes), bold colors, geometric shapes and photography.

    This graphic syntax, developed a century, ago still resonates with a contemporary audience.
