Join us in celebrating the 100th anniversary of Walter Gropius’ Bauhaus with this documentary exploring the history, present, and future of the utopian design and architecture school and communal social movement around the world.


Bauhaus Spirit: 100 Years of Bauhaus, is a documentary that describes the fascinating story of the Bauhaus as a statement, but also the failure and renewal of a social utopia. It tells of artists, scientists, and architects today, who, in their examinations of current challenges, also relate to the Bauhaus. The story of this unfinished utopian project, with its manifold exciting cross-references, unfolds before our eyes while always keeping in touch with questions still topical today: How do we want to live, where do we want to go?
