The Spirit of Bauhaus to guest-star at Paris’ Musée des Arts Décoratifs
In his Bauhaus manifesto, architect Walter Gropus famously decreed “Architects, sculptors, painters, we must all get back to craft!” This time, even enthusiasts are invited to the party. Before the movement’s 100-year anniversary arrives in 2019 (and the world inevitably catches Bauhaus fever once again), Paris exhibition organisers Olivier Gabet and Anne Monier have curated a display of the most important milestones in the history of the celebrated formative art school. The aim of the Gropius-led think-tank had been to revolutionise modern life by bringing arts, crafts and industrial design together in a cauldron of creative inspiration.
