About the Grand Tour of Modernism

This Germany-wide project is emblematic of the close cooperation with local institutions and the federal states’ tourism and marketing organisations.
It has been made possible by the support of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM), the State of Saxony-Anhalt and the Free State of Thuringia.

“In my capacity as patron of the Grand Tour of Modernism I invite you to a journey across Germany to follow the trails of the Bauhaus movement and discover the great diversity of modernist architecture. Discover known and unknown places and buildings of Modernism and be curious to learn more about our architectural heritage.”

The Bauhaus Association 2019

The Bauhaus Association 2019 is a working partnership of the three Bauhaus institutions that maintain collections – the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung in Berlin, the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation and the Klassik Stiftung Weimar – and the Federal Government, represented by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) and the German Federal Cultural Foundation (KSB), along with eleven federal states. The current state members of the Association are Baden-Württemberg, Berlin, Brandenburg, Hamburg, Hesse, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia.

The Programme

Experimental testing ground and incubator for ideas: the centenary year offers a whole host of events focusing on architecture and design, art and cultural history, education and research. Highlights include the big inaugural festival in Berlin, the international research and exhibition project Bauhaus Imaginista, the Grand Tour of Modernism and the educational programme Bauhaus Agents. The three centenary exhibitions in Dessau, Weimar and Berlin will be accompanied by numerous projects in eleven states. The three new museum buildings dedicated to the Bauhaus in Berlin (2022), Weimar (2019) and Dessau (2019) will provide a solid foundation to carry this incubator for ideas into the future. The programme does not seek to express one overarching  Bauhaus story, but instead presents an interplay of positions and perspectives that can certainly also embrace conflicting stances.
