This event has ended.

This retrospective, presented in collaboration with a consortium of the three Bauhaus collections in Germany (Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin; Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau; and Klassik Stiftung Weimar), is the first comprehensive treatment of the Bauhaus at MoMA since 1938 and the first major show in the United States on the subject in decades. With a wide diversity of objects, including examples of industrial design, furniture, graphics, film, photography, book design, weaving, theater, painting, and sculpture, the exhibition will highlight the school's revolutionary ideas of artistic education and production, as well as its enduring influence. Several of the key objects in the exhibition have never been shown in the U.S.
