Germany’s new Bauhaus museum set for interactive opening

The new Bauhaus museum opens its doors to the public for the first time in the eastern German city of Weimar after three years of construction, giving admirers of the world-famous “form follows function” aesthetic a new place of pilgrimage.

An inauguration weekend, with free entry and various concerts and spectacles, will mark the peak of a year during which hundreds of events across Germany are commemorating the 100th birthday of the Bauhaus movement, associated with clean and functional design.

The school began in 1919 in the aftermath of World War One. Bauhaus – German for “building house” – pioneered a new restraint as a reaction against the decorative frills of the pre-war era that now seemed frivolous.

The art school later moved from Weimar to Dessau, also in the east, where – once Hitler’s Nazis moved into the local townhall – the Bauhaus was shut down.
