Bauhaus Typography at 100

Few design movements have shaped contemporary typography quite like the Bauhaus. Founded in 1919 by German architect Walter Gropius, the school embraced the tools of mass production in the creation of radical new art.

Bauhaus Typography at 100 explores the school's unique legacy in graphic design through artifacts of its own making -- its books, magazines, course materials, product catalogs, stationery, promotional fliers, and other ephemera -- as well as objects created by its many characters before and after the time of the school. The exhibition draws a throughline from the Bauhaus's iconic style to the shape of typography today.

Bauhaus Typography at 100, curated by Rob Saunders and Henry Cole Smith, will feature typographic work by Johannes Itten, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, László Moholy-Nagy, Herbert Bayer, and Joost Schmidt, along with important contributions from unsung students like Friedl Dicker.
