In its brief 14-year history, before it was shut down by the Nazis, the Bauhaus art school had an enormous impact on German art, design, architecture and film.

The Bauhaus masters aimed to remodel the structure of society itself and their efforts helped to liberate European design from historicism and define the look of the modern environment.On show will be 300 items by well-known figures including Josef Albers, Marcel Breuer, Walter Gropius, Paul Klee and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, as well as by Bauhaus students.
