Bauhaus


In 2019, Bauhaus will celebrate the 100th anniversary of its foundation. Those involved with the world-famous design school have also left their mark here. The Fagus Factory built in 1911 is considered the first example of modern industrial architecture and the precursor to the Bauhaus building in Dessau. The building with its distinctive glass architecture designed by Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The most frequently sold Bauhaus product – the Bauhaus wallpaper – has its origins in Lower Saxony. It was commissioned, produced and sold by the company Rasch, based in Osnabrück.

Prime examples of New Objectivity can be found scattered across Lower Saxony. In Celle, the buildings by Otto Haesler and the buildings above ground at the Rammelsberg mine in Goslar – also a UNESCO World Heritage Site – by Fritz Schupp and Martin Kremmer are open to the public.

For its 2019 anniversary, many locations will highlight the legacy of Bauhaus, for example the State Museum of Art and Cultural History in Oldenburg, the Sprengel Museum in Hannover and the Felix Nussbaum Haus in Osnabrück.
