Paris: "The spirit of the Bauhaus"
at the Museum of Decorative Arts.
“Architects, sculptors, painters, we all have to go back to crafts,” writes architect Walter Gropus in a Bauhaus manifesto. Founded in 1919 in Weimar, dissolved in 1933 in Berlin facing the rise of Nazism, the Bauhaus is a school of artistic education which has established itself as a reference in the history of art of the twentieth century. The Museum of Decorative Arts pays tribute to the spirit of the movement through 900 works, objects, furniture, textiles, drawings, models, paintings repositioned in the context of the school and testifying to the extreme richness of the fields of experimentation. Faced with success, the Museum of Decorative Arts will open until 9 pm the last two weekends before the end of the exhibition. So, quickly, we run there.
Until 26 February. Www.lesartsdécoratifs.fr
