Nederland - Bauhaus. Pioniers van een nieuwe wereld

The year 2019 was the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus, the revolutionary German art and design school that existed from 1919 to 1933. The school’s groundbreaking ideas, which later exerted worldwide influence, found their echo in the Netherlands in architecture, design and education. In a large-scale exhibition, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen explored this Netherlands-Bauhaus network for the first time. In the accompanying publication, edited by curator Mienke Simon Thomas and art historian Yvonne Brentjens, 21 authors from the Netherlands and Germany each dealt with a different topic related to the Bauhaus. The essays cover the period from the years just prior to the establishment of the school in 1919 until the international travelling Bauhaus retrospective in 1968.
