In 2019 the Bauhaus will celebrate its hundredth anniversary! Preparations for the centenary have raised a host of questions: To what extent is the Bauhaus tied to a place, and how can its essence be conveyed in a museum? How can the tension between school and museum — in particular the Bauhaus and its everyday presence — be given a productive role in fashioning new models of cultural education? What stimuli can the Bauhaus provide for a critical practice in today’s globalized world? In the process of compiling bauhaus news, international Bauhaus experts, curators, historians, philosophers, artists, architects, educators, and teachers were asked to consider the Bauhaus from a twenty-first-century perspective. The book presents contrasting contemporary and historical statements and stories about the Bauhaus world heritage.
