2018 Münster

Bauhaus and America: Experiments in Light and Motion is being presented on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus. Based on the importance of the Bauhaus—and in particular the Bauhaus stage as an interdisciplinary laboratory for experiments in light and movement—the artistic debates of former Bauhaus members and Americans are examined for the first time with light and movement, including light and kinetic art, experimental film, dance, and performance. The exhibition also features works by European artists from the 1950s to the present day.

2018 Charlotte, North Carolina

Latin Americans in Paris presents selected Latin American artists who, inspired by the teachings of European artists such as Max Bill and Victor Vasarely and the Argentinian-Italian Lucio Fontana, moved to Paris in the mid-twentieth century to live and work. Their presence in Europe initiated a cultural and ideological exchange between artists, leading to innovations that would influence and effect Western art production for the succeeding generations of artists.

The principal artists of focus are Martha Boto, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Julio Le Parc, Jesús Rafael Soto, and Gregorio Vardanega. These Latin Americans are shown in conjunction with the European artists in the Bechtler collection that overlapped historically or aesthetically including Josef Albers, Max Bill, Richard Lohse, Willy Müller-Britnau, Niki de Saint Phalle, Daniel Spoerri, Jean Tinguely, and Victor Vasarely.

2019 Rotterdam

Bauhaus Nederland considers the influence of the Bauhaus in the Netherlands as well as the reciprocal influence of Dutch art and architecture on the development of the Bauhaus. In the interwar years, Rotterdam was the Dutch city in which modernism was most prominently expressed in architecture and design. For this exhibition, the museum's collection is augmented with loans from other collections at home and abroad. The two-way inspiration between the Netherlands and the Bauhaus is illustrated through artworks, furniture, ceramics, textiles, industrial design, photography, typography and architecture. The exhibition begins at the turn of the twentieth century and continues through 1968, featuring 200 works from three main Bauhaus periods. 2019 marks the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus, the innovative German art and design school which ran from 1919 to 1933.
