Google Arts & Culture: Bauhaus Everywhere – Traces of a design school in our everyday lives
Over 10,000 objects from the collection of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation digitally accessible worldwide
A joint project of Google Arts & Culture and the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation will go live on 27 November 2019: Bauhaus Everywhere – Traces of a design school in our everyday lives. The online exhibition shows how the Bauhaus influences architecture, design and our everyday lives still today – and, at the same time, makes important objects accessible for international Bauhaus
With Bauhaus Everywhere – Traces of a design school in our everyday lives, 10,000 digitised objects can be researched, the Bauhaus Building in Dessau explored in Virtual Reality (VR) and three never realized Bauhaus buildings – the Round House by Carl Fieger, the residential project BAMBOS by Marcel Breuer, and the Courtyard House by Eduard Ludwig – discovered from the inside and from the outside using Augmented Reality (AR). In addition, Bauhaus experts of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation and other partners worldwide have curated 45 online exhibitions on the student life at the Bauhaus, on international Bauhaus connections to Japan, India or Brazil, on the women at the Bauhaus or on the design icons.
The project is a great benefit for the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation. Its collection comprises about 50,000 objects, most of which are kept protected in the Bauhaus Archive with limited public access for conservational reasons. A total of 14,600 objects have now been digitised in accordance with the latest international standards. Dr Claudia Perren, director and CEO of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation: Digitalisation enables us to make a part of our collection accessible worldwide.
