A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Bauhaus Week Berlin

Various venues Berlin Art

“Let us desire, conceive and create,” Walter Gropius writes in the Bauhaus founding manifesto, “the new building of the future together. It will combine architecture, sculpture and painting in a single form, and will one day rise toward the heavens from the hands of a million workers as the crystalline symbol of a new and coming faith.” You may have noticed by now that this is the year of Bauhaus—100 years since its founding in 1919, in Weimar, Germany. A weeklong celebration takes place in the country of its birth. —J.V.
