The Bauhaus and the Nazis: The 100th anniversary brought nothing

es is one of the best maintained and most passionately defended Bauhaus legends: the Nazis’ closure of the building school founded by Walter Gropius in 1933. To put it mildly, this is a misinterpretation.

But the interest in finally clarifying things was and is obviously low – also and especially in the Bauhaus year 2019.
