Marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus school, this Getty Research Institute exhibition considers the school’s early dedication to spiritual expression and its development of a curriculum based on the elements deemed fundamental to all forms of artistic practice. More than 250 rare objects are on view, including woodcut prints, drawings, collages, photography, textile samples, artists’ books, student notebooks, masters’ teaching aids and notes, letters, and ephemera from the school’s founding and early years. 

The show is accompanied by the online exhibition “Bauhaus: Building the New Artist,” which further explores the school’s history, theoretical underpinnings, and novel pedagogy. It features more than 50 rare objects not available in the gallery exhibition and includes three interactive activities modelled after exercises developed by Bauhaus masters – a Wassily Kandinsky colour survey, a Josef Albers 3D paper cutting exercise, and a customizable experience that embodies the spirit of Oskar Schlemmer’s “Triadic Ballet.”
