bau1haus – Modernism in the globe
With text by Kaija Voss
Photographer Jean Molitor has been tracing the heritage of the Bauhaus around the world since 2009. He started his “bau1haus” project in Africa, and has pursued it in 30 countries of Europe, Asia and Latin America.
He has found residential blocks, cinemas, schools housing estates, theatres, villas, hospitals, petrol stations and industrial buildings, in the larger cities and in the middle of nowhere. With his pictures he underlines the global connections of the Bauhaus and shows how much of an impact it had – and in some respects still has – around the world.
