The Society of Architectural Historians is pleased to present a four-day fundraiser offering special access to iconic landmarks and exhibitions to celebrate 100 years of the Bauhaus in the three German cities associated with it—Weimar, Dessau, and Berlin. Over the course of four days, we will visit two brand-new Bauhaus Museums in Weimar and Dessau, see three Bauhaus centenary exhibitions, and have access to rarely-seen buildings, including Mies’s last house in Europe, the Lemke House (1932) in the Berlin suburb of Alt-Hohenschönhausen, where we will have a candle-lit closing night dinner.
The program will be led by two experts on German Modernism, Barry Bergdoll, the Meyer Schapiro Professor of Art History at Columbia University and co-curator of the 2009 Bauhaus exhibition at MoMA, and Dietrich Neumann, Professor of the History of Art and Architecture and Director of Urban Studies at Brown University. Building on their memorable 2007 SAH Study Tour focusing on Mies van der Rohe in New York, Berlin, and Stuttgart, these incomparable experts will team up once again to provide intense immersion on the architecture and design of the Bauhaus era in Germany, 1919 to 1933. The four-day itinerary will begin in Weimar (where the Bauhaus was founded, 1919–1925 under Walter Gropius), proceed to Dessau (where the Bauhaus thrived, 1926–1932 under Gropius, Hannes Meyer, and Mies van der Rohe) and end in Berlin (where the Bauhaus closed in 1932–1933 under Mies van der Rohe).
