Description

About the Film: "Bauhaus Spirit" | VIEW TRAILER

Celebrate the 100th anniversary of Walter Gropius’ Bauhaus in this film screening of "Bauhaus Spirit" (90 min.), a lively and wide-ranging exploration of the movement uniting modern design, art, architecture and performing arts with communal social living to form an academic discipline and utopian way of life. Combining free imagination and play with strict structure, Bauhaus’ members included Anni Albers, Marcel Breuer, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, László Moholy-Nagy, Oskar Schlemmer and more.

Richard Neill, photographer, filmmaker and founding director of Adventure Pictures, will lead a discussion varying topics related to this most comprehensive film on the subject to date and touch on how this influential 20th-century movement’s history, legacy, and continued relevance in an age where function and environmental sustainability have taken on new urgency. Richard has produced films and multimedia projects focused on urban design and architecture which have aired nationally on PBS, National Geographic, and Discovery Channel, with additional projects shown at the Mak Museum, Vienna, the National Building Museum, Washington, D.C. and in film festivals across the country.

This AIASF program is part of the 100-year anniversary celebrations of the Bauhaus in partnership with the Center for Architecture + Design (The Center) and the Museum of Craft and Design (MCD). bauhaus.photo is a traveling exhibition, developed by the Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum für Gestaltung, Berlin, in partnership with the Goethe Institut San Francisco. bauhaus.photo presents 100 key works from the world’s largest collection of Bauhaus photography, which is comprised of more than 70,000 images.

100 photographic reprints presented at the partnering venues will display the wide variety of ways in which photography was used to document and foster creativity at the Bauhaus. Categorized into four themes–life at the Bauhaus (celebrations/performances, everyday life/leisure, and life in the workshops), portraits, architectural and product photography, as well as images from the Bauhaus’ only photography course, headed by Walter Peterhans–these prints provide an extensive overview of the artistically diverse Bauhaus campus. AIASF will showcase the majority of the photographs spanning all four themes in the Center for Architecture + Design gallery. Additionally, in their front galleries, the Museum of Craft and Design will feature 30 photographs focusing on design objects, weaving workshops, and product photography.
