Hammering, planing, sawing and weaving – it was pretty loud and dusty in the workshop wing of the School of Design, the Bauhaus Dessau. Although conceived as ‘laboratories for industry’, a great deal was still done by hand in the Dessau workshops.

The exhibition ‘Craft becomes Modern. The Bauhaus in the Making’ in the original setting, the weaving workshop in the Bauhaus building in Dessau, tells the story of the workshops from the perspective of craft. In the microcosm of workshop praxis, the exhibition shows the prevailing wide-ranging field of conflict in which craft at the Bauhaus was redefined as a utopia, albeit one that coexisted with industrial culture.

Opening times: daily 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Bauhaus Dessau
Admission: Bauhaus-Ticket 7.50 €, concessions 4.50 €
