This exhibition looks to the immaterial and performative nature of Bauhaus alumni Kurt Schwerdtfeger’s reflecting light plays, which were originally produced for an institution party in 1922.
Germany’s ‘Bauhaus Imaginista' programme features four exhibitions worldwide (China, Japan, Russia and Brazil) that are happening this year and next, while a string of institutional exhibitions across Germany look at the waves Bauhaus made in the nation of its founding.

Various locations, Berlin, Dessar and Weimar
Operating over three consecutive weeks in three different cities, the Triennale der Moderne aims to build a "network of modernism" and raise greater public awareness of the buildings and avant-garde relationships of the early 20th century.
Bauhaus did not promote a single formula or style, but an ethos and an educational program. Its founding director, architect Walter Gropius, dreamed of merging art and crafts into a single holistic discipline, outlined a visionary idea of design, mixing practical suggestions with grandiose statements.
