The Aspen Institute presents Bauhaus: The Making of Modern

The Aspen Institute

Location: The Aspen Institute Times: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

This program is reserved for members of the Aspen Institute Society of Fellows only. To become a member and register for this program, contact Chloe Tabah, Program Manager at the Aspen Institute, at 970.544.7964.

2019 marks the centennial anniversary of the Bauhaus, the German art school recognized by many as the 20th century’s most influential experiment in art, architecture and design. This two-day forum will dive deeply into the tumultuous times that fostered the Bauhaus school; its iconoclastic leaders and their unique approaches; and the philosophy born out of its brief fourteen-year life that has had a transformative effect on architecture, sculpture, painting, industrial design, and so much more. The Bauhaus sent ripples around the world — not least of all to Aspen, Colorado. Through lectures, discussions, hands-on workshops, and exhibitions we will celebrate this rebellious and aspirational movement that in so many ways laid the foundations for our modern era.
