Exploring the Birthplace of The Bauhaus

by Karen LeBlanc

For more than a century, the Bauhaus, a progressive art and design school founded in Weimar, Germany, in 1919 has influenced Modernism in all its forms. Bauhaus teachings remain relevant today, resonating in architecture, art, furniture, home products, fashion, even graphic design. The English translation of “Bauhaus” is School of Building, a term, and a trademark of Modernism as a movement, mindset and style. To understand this globally-influential school, I traveled throughout East Germany to retrace the Bauhaus legacy from its beginnings in Weimar to its demise in Berlin.
