Bauhaus Dessau

Curatorial Workshop Department

Mediator between research and the public sphere

The Curatorial Workshop Department plans and organises the exhibitions of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation together with its research associates. It translates topics of research into accessible exhibition concepts and other innovative forms of communication. The aim is to offer all interested parties diverse points of access to the Bauhaus Dessau, its history, its buildings and its significance and impact up to the present day. Both the historic and the new sites of the Bauhaus are included in the process and the vitality of the Bauhaus institution is demonstrated in many and varied ways.

Over the next few years, the main responsibility of the curatorial workshop will be to organise the new Bauhaus Museum Dessau. For the centenary of the Bauhaus in 2019 it will be possible to present the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation’s comprehensive collection to the public in a wide-ranging and contemporary narrative for the very first time. Likewise with a view to the centenary year, a new curatorial concept is being planned for the historic Bauhaus buildings in Dessau.
