2019. April 24. Programs of Goethe-Institut and Budapest100 at the KÉK [*REG]

Bauhaus was not only linked to Weimar and Dessau, but was international – and not only in it’s effect – from the beginning. Bauhaus lecturers and students came from all around the World, that shows its significance even now, a hundred years later. László Moholy-Nagy, Otti Berger, Margit Téry-Adler, Farkas Molnár and Andor Weininger (to whom the Hungarian National Gallery pays an exhibition running currently) comes to our mind instantly. Hungarians thus had a remarkable contribution to scientific, artistic and architectural performace of Bauhaus.

Budapest100 this year helps us to discover the Hungarian Bauhaus. For Goethe-Institut the centenary of Bauhaus is one of the most important European cultural event. Do not miss it!
