The ensemble of Masters’ Houses in Dessau became the epitome of an artists’ colony in the 1920s: this was where the Bauhaus Masters lived next door to one another. With the Bauhaus Residency Programme, the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation makes it possible for young artists to once again live and work in the Masters’ Houses. The publication presents the programme, the exhibition House Gropius || Contemporary,and the artists-in-residence at the Bauhaus in the years 2016 to 2018 and examines the influence of architecture on creative processes, the importance of artistic residencies, and the relevance of the Bauhaus for artistic practice today.

State Bauhaus in Weimar 1919–1923
In 1919, the state art school in Weimar was reopened under the direction of Walter Gropius, with a radical new teaching approach and under the new name Bauhaus. Four years would pass until the first exhibition, which presented a novel approach to art to an enthusiastic public and spread the school’s ideas throughout the world.
