100 Years of Bauhaus

With the support of the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany and the College of Arts, Letters and Education at EWU, the EWU Modern Languages & Literatures German program and the Art Department are collaborating on a series of student-centered events from November 4 through 8 focusing on 100 years of Bauhaus design.

This is all part of the Embassy’s year-long celebration Wunderbar Together, honoring the German-American friendship—our shared history, values, and experience. We will be taking a closer look at the women of Bauhaus and how Bauhaus touches our lives right now and right here in Washington.

The famous Bauhaus art school was operational in Germany from 1919 to 1933. While Bauhaus was open only a short time, it had a tremendous impact on the development of modern art and design.

The activities will include a student-curated exhibit on the women of Bauhaus, an art competition with Bauhaus-inspired art from our students on campus, a Bauhaus-inspired exhibit by VCD students at the EWU Downtown Student Gallery in Cheney, a talk at the Women’s and Gender Studies Education Center on Gender at the Bauhaus, a panel discussion with art professors and community experts on Bauhaus, several informal coffee hours, and documentary film screenings throughout the week.
