In 2019, Germany will be celebrating the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus, together with partners all over the world. Founded in Weimar in 1919, relocated to Dessau in 1925 and closed in Berlin under pressure from the Nazis in 1933, the school of design only existed for a total of 14 years. Despite this, the influence of the Bauhaus continues right down to the present day all over the world.
