Special Poster Installation Honoring the 100th Anniversary of Bauhaus
Originally an avant-garde art school founded by Walter Gropius, the Bauhaus name soon became synonymous with revolutionary ideas and techniques that found their way into nearly every aspect of arts, crafts, typography, architecture, and design. Belief in harmony of form and function over the traditional notion of art emerged from the academic circles of Bauhaus, bringing about unprecedented change to the contemporary art world of the early 20th century and whose ripple effects are felt one hundred years after the birth of this historic movement.
Bauhaus 100 is a poster campaign illustrative of the impact Bauhaus has had on modern, creative society. This commemorative project has produced a growing collection of more than 400 posters made by designers from all over the globe who have one thing in common — a desire and willingness to experiment with their art, connecting them directly to the groundbreaking principles and practices of Bauhaus. Just as in 1919, when Bauhaus’s revolutionary doctrines first brought together artisans and craftsmen from different parts of the world, today’s global design community joins forces in an expressive celebration of the unique phenomenon that is Bauhaus.
