Bauhaus at Folkwang

Staging the World

28 April – 8 September 2019

To mark the hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, Museum Folkwang is offering an insight into its own collections. A shifting interplay between painting, works on paper, posters, photography and the moving image, this series of three collection displays traces the various lines of connection between Museum Folkwang and the Bauhaus. In the course of this year of the Bauhaus, Museum Folkwang will take a look at the Expressionist beginnings of the school with Lyonel Feininger (18.1 – 14.4.2019), present the Staging the World of the Bauhaus (28.4 – 8.9.2019) and, focusing on the example of László Moholy-Nagy, will showcase the school’s turn to photography and film (20.9 – Dec. 2019).
