With the photo campaign ‘The world sees Bauhaus’, bauhaus100 invites you to capture and share your personal views and unusual perspectives of the Bauhaus.
The Bauhaus’s influences on 20th century architecture, art and design are many and varied and it remains omnipresent in all kinds of realms and in the most disparate regions of the world. With the photo campaign ‘The world sees Bauhaus’, we invite you to show this diversity in your own images: Where, who or what is the Bauhaus today? Where has the Bauhaus left its mark in our daily lives? What does it inspire? To what degree does it still polarize? Why is the centenary a reason to celebrate, scrutinize or (re)discover the Bauhaus?
With the centenary in mind, the photo campaign is about personal ways looking at the Bauhaus and its work. The 100 becomes a stencil through which all who want to share their view of the Bauhaus photograph a subject of their choice, then mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org or share with #bauhaus100.
The first stencils are already in circulation, so keep an eye out for the 100 when you next visit the Bauhaus Dessau, the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung in Berlin, the Bauhaus Museum Weimar or other Bauhaus sites.
For fans of creative experiments or DIY, the stencil is as well available to download: download the PDF, print, glue to stiff card and carefully cut out the 100 – this works best with a cutter. Or just wait for the app, which will also be available here soon.
We look forward to seeing many perspectives of the Bauhaus.
