Known as Germany’s city of enlightenment, Weimar was the birthplace of Bauhaus, the extremely influential but short-lived art school founded by architect Walter Gropius in 1919. The school was ill-fated from the start, constantly under fire for its ideologies, but its demise at the hands of the Nazis only facilitated the rapid spread of its philosophy around the world.
Expert Mike Hope will guide you through its turbulent 14 year existence from Weimar through Dessau to Berlin whilst delving deeper into the ideologies of ‘total’ works of art and art education, and the enormous influence on modern architecture and design that is still very much palpable today.
Join Mike Hope on this wonderful tour with visits to Erfurt, Weimar and the Bauhaus Museum, Dessau and its Bauhaus Museum and Masters' House and Berlin's Bauhaus Archive.
