Event Description The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library is pleased to announce \"Bauhaus: A Centennial Celebration (1919-2019).\" Join art historian Victoria Martino for an intellectually stimulating and visually stunning five-week survey celebrating the centenary of the Bauhaus, the most legendary and influential school of art and design in history. On April 1, 1919, architect Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany. The school sought to erase the boundaries between fine and applied art and to reform art education. The lecture series traces the history of the Bauhaus through World War II and beyond. The April 23 lecture is entitled \"Berlin: 1932-1933.\" In late 1932, Mies van der Rohe rented, with his own money, a derelict factory in Berlin to be rehabilitated as the new Bauhaus. The school operated for 10 months without interference from the Nazi Party. However, political pressure on the Bauhaus had been steadily increasing, and the Berlin Bauhaus was closed by the Gestapo in April 1933.
