One of the most influential schools of the twentieth-century, the Bauhaus was a place of innovation, creation and experimentation that would ultimately rethink the basic conditions of life and change the way we all lived, worked and even played. Through iconic design objects, photography, textiles, and archival material, the exhibition explores the school’s pioneering approach to art education, its influence on design and its significant impact on architecture showcasing the work of Marcel Breuer, one of the most notable figures to come out of the Bauhaus. The exhibition also sheds light on the movement’s influence and relationship to our region, revisiting key projects across the Middle East, including our house, JPNF, designed by architect Mario Jossa of Marcel Breuer & Associates.
