With the photo campaign ‘The world sees Bauhaus’, 100 years of bauhaus invites you to share your personal views of the Bauhaus. Our current picture of the week by Christian Sauer, shows the final stage of documenta 14 in Kassel. After 162 days the exhibition for contemporary art ends this sunday.

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 in you? To what degree does it still polarize? Why is the centenary a reason to celebrate, scrutinize or (re)discover the Bauhaus? it?

This photo campaign is all about your personal view of the bauhaus today. Just take a photo of your individual perspective using the 100-stencil, share it with #bauhaus100 and become part of the centenary. We’ll feature your best contributions right here, or on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

You’ll find the stencils in the museum-shops, or on request at 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 also available for download: download the PDF above, print, glue it on some sturdy cardboard and carefully cut out the 100 – this works best with a cutter. 

For the more digital-oriented amongst you, we’re currently working on the app for your phone, which will make sharing even more fun, and be available here soon.

We’re looking forward to your Bauhaus-Perspectives.
