Germany is spending the next four years building not one, not two, but three new Bauhaus museums timed to the centenary of the influential design movement that sprouted on German soil in 1919. Dedicated museums will be constructed in Weimar and Dessau, former homes of the avant-garde architecture and design school, and Berlin's already-bountiful Bauhaus Archive will be modernizing its Walter Gropius-designed building, and erecting a brand-new Bauhaus museum right next door. The archive is currently putting on its last exhibition of the permanent collection before the current building closes for renovations, and it's a stunner. Called "100 New Objects," the show includes 80 recent Bauhaus acquisitions, with a special focus on photography.
The exhibition features rarely-seen works by celebrated Bauhaus teachers and students like Marcel Breuer, Marianne Brandt, Lyonel Feininger, László Moholy-Nagy, Oskar Schlemmer and Alma Siedhoff-Buscher. Check it out:
