2019 marks the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus, the innovative German art and design school which ran from 1919 to 1933. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen will show the Dutch side of the Bauhaus.
In the interwar years, Rotterdam was the Dutch city in which modernism was most prominently expressed in architecture and design. For this exhibition, the museum’s own collection will be augmented with loans from other collections at home and abroad. The two-way inspiration between the Netherlands and the Bauhaus will be illustrated through artworks, furniture, ceramics, textiles, industrial design, photography, typography and architecture.
