The Bauhaus – 14 years of innovation, 100 years of radiation
Conference by Agnès Ghenassia

School of art and architecture founded in 1919 in Weimar, the Bauhaus, despite only fourteen years of activity, experienced an unparalleled resonance throughout the twentieth century and continues to fascinate even today.
A place of synthesis for avant-gardes, it was a catalyst for innovative attitudes in many fields: architecture, design, painting, photography, the performing arts. But it was also a model of educational experimentation, community life and creative fantasy.
A real school of creativity, the Bauhaus wanted to invent the future, to be a bearer not only of new techniques and forms, but of new behaviors.
Its definitive closure in Berlin in 1933 did not prevent it from being “reborn” around the world, especially in the United States, thanks to outstanding teachers and prestigious architects.

This conference of the Association of Friends of the Vasarely Foundation is part of the exhibition ‘bauhaus.photo’, organized in collaboration with the Franco-German Center of Provence, the Vasarely Foundation, the partners of Cycle ‘Architecture Today’s issues and looks’, the Bauhaus-Archiv, Berlin and the Federation of Franco-German Houses. In partnership with the Association of Friends of the Granet Museum and the work of Cézanne.

AND THEY WILL BUILD CABINS
A conference by Jean-Christophe ARCOS
Art critic and curator

Pure forms, golden numbers, rationalist abstraction, human-scale geometry and a balance between form and function: with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, we celebrate a century of modernism, because the Bauhaus rhymes with the avant-garde artistic guard of the 20th century.
The personalities who taught it, and the three architects (Walter Gropius, Hannes Meyer, Mies van der Rohe) who have successively directed, have defined its major contributions, as the invention of design, joining the beautiful to the useful and economics, but also a keen sense of creative freedom and the idea of ​​an architecture at the service of social progress, which led to its closure by the Nazi regime in 1933.
His legacies in the United States, Israel and post-war Europe have helped to make architecture an engaged art and reflect major changes in education, access to artistic forms and intersections between disciplines.

This conference of the Association of Friends of the Vasarely Foundation is part of the exhibition ‘bauhaus.photo’, organized in collaboration with the Franco-German Center of Provence, the Vasarely Foundation, the partners of Cycle ‘Architecture Today’s issues and looks’, the Bauhaus-Archiv, Berlin and the Federation of Franco-German Houses. In partnership with the Association of Friends of the Granet Museum and the work of Cezanne.
