March 1st 2017 - January 8th 2018
Bauhaus-Archiv, Museum of Design, Klingelhöferstraße 14, Berlin


For the last time before construction work begins on the museum’s expansion, the Bauhaus-Archiv is presenting highlights from the Bauhaus collection. They will utilise this occasion to take the multifaceted theme of movement as a guiding principle leading through the presentation. This theme will be traced among works from the preliminary course (motion studies) and also from all the workshops. Photographs attest to the movements demanded of Bauhaus students and staff: these resulted not least from the Bauhaus’s own relocations from Weimar to Dessau and Berlin, and they also extended to the point of exile. World famous Bauhaus teachers like Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer and László Moholy-Nagy as well as numerous students are represented.
