The Bauhaus celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2009, and “The Bauhaus: 90 Years / 90 Days” commemorated this anniversary. During this 90-day project (from July 6 till October 3), projects happened which creatively played around with and paid homage to an aspect of the Bauhaus. Examples of those projects included a dance performance inspired by Oskar Schlemmer’s ballet, a musical performance that uses a Kandinsky painting as a graphic score, a fiber art project inspired by Anni Albers’ work, a poem inspired by Walter Gropius’ architecture, a short story inspired by Marianne Brandt’s work, an essay reflecting on an aspect of the Bauhaus movement, and so on.
These events were presented at different locations around the world, and this website documents those projects. Part of "The Bauhaus: 90 Years / 90 Days" were part of The Fourth Annual Chicago Calling Arts Festival. “The Bauhaus: 90 Years / 90 Days” was presented by the Borderbend Arts Collective and the Gropius in Chicago Coalition.
This year the Bauhaus celebrates its 90th Anniversary. “Bauhaus: 90 Years / 90 Days” is a new project which celebrates the Bauhaus movement; it will take place over 90 days, from July till October 2009. During this 90-day period, projects will be presented to commemorate and pay homage to the Bauhaus in different ways.
