Bauhaus World Tour: Where to See the Movement’s Best Art, Design, and Architecture

The German school's impact has spread across the globe.

It’s hard to believe that a school only in oper­a­tion for 14 short years has gone on to become the world’s most icon­ic art and design insti­tu­tion. Today, fans of the illus­tri­ous Bauhaus era can see 100 years of tan­gible influ­ence all across the globe. Below, a few museums and exhib­i­tions to add to your must-vis­it list. 

Art

Zen­trum Paul Klee

Often called the fath­er of mod­ern art,” abstract paint­er slash Bauhaus pro­fess­or Paul Klee is dir­ectly respons­ible for influ­en­cing mul­tiple gen­er­a­tions of stu­dio artists over the last cen­tury. It’s only fit­ting that Klee was honored with a name­sake museum where pat­rons can view an extens­ive selec­tion of his vast body of work.

Har­vard Art Museums

Bauhaus has taken over the Spe­cial Exhib­i­tions Gal­lery at the Ivy League uni­ver­sity, where vis­it­ors can per­use a rarely shown archiv­al selec­tion of Bauhaus-related paint­ings, tex­tiles, pho­to­graphs, peri­od­ic­als, typo­graphy, stu­dent exer­cises, and class notes.

Design

Design­mu­seum Denmark

In col­lab­or­a­tion with Vitra Design Museum and the Bundeskun­sthalle, the Dan­ish Museum of Art & Design is host­ing a com­pre­hens­ive exhib­i­tion that show­cases rare design works by Bauhaus all-stars like Mari­anne Brandt, Mar­cel Breuer, Lyo­nel Fein­inger and many more.

Museum Boij­mans Van Beunin­gen

In cel­eb­ra­tion of the movement’s icon­ic cen­ten­ary, the museum is host­ing a ret­ro­spect­ive entitled Neth­er­lands ⇄ Bauhaus: Pion­eers of a New World,” which fea­tures over 800 design works cre­ated by 60 prom­in­ent Dutch attendees of the Bauhaus school.

Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung

Designed by architect/​Bauhaus founder Wal­ter Gropi­us, here you will find the world’s largest col­lec­tion of school’s arti­facts, com­prised of works by stu­dents and pro­fess­ors alike. Unfor­tu­nately the museum is cur­rently closed for renov­a­tions, but vis­it­ors can take a stroll around the grounds to mar­vel at the structure’s com­pel­ling aes­thet­ics. (Or they can vis­it the tem­por­ary space less than three kilo­met­ers away!)
