Changes In the Urban View: 100 years of Bauhaus

4/11/19 9:30 - 12:30 Gad and Eti Proper Auditorium // 12th Anne Frank st, Ramat Gan

100 years after the foundation of the Bauhaus, the Italian Embassy in Tel Aviv, with Shenkar College, Polytechnic University of Milan, and the White City Center celebrate the cultural heritage of the Weimar school with an academic panel.

The Bauhaus school, embracing an interdisciplinary and holistic vision, has rewritten the principles of art and architecture and has seeded the roots of industrial design.

The legacy of the Bauhaus is tangible in the White City and in many works of art and design of the twentieth century, but also intangible and still dominates the philosophy and teaching in the universities, with a global approach to technique, craftsmanship, science and design.

The challenge, which Israel and Italy have in front of them today, is to preserve this heritage and enhance it, to live the dream of its masters: the utopia of a courageous modernity, capable of being more just and more beautiful.
