Bauhaus movement 90 this year.

The legendary Bauhaus movement turns 90 this year. The school was founded by a young architect, Walter Gropius, who wanted to shape products for the future and create a more just society. “We all lived together like siblings,” reported Bauhaus student Ré Soupault. Anyone who came to study at the school had already renounced their bourgeois background. Soupault, for example, accepted the need to part ways with her family as a necessary evil.

This didn’t necessarily meet with favor among the local population. To the dismay of the citizens of Weimar, “Bauhaus people of both sexes” sunbathed outside in the nude, and their “licentious intercourse” had even produced children. spiegel
