Germany celebrates the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus in 2019. Founded in 1919 in Weimar, moved to Dessau in 1925 and closed under pressure from Nazism in 1933 in Berlin, this progressive art school existed for only fourteen years. The legendary Bauhaus is still a source of inspiration worldwide.
