The Women of the Bauhaus

The Women of the Bauhaus

Susanne Radelhof

Germany | 2019 | 43 min
Home of the avant-garde and the foundation of modern architecture, the Bauhaus school was founded 100 years ago and its masters continue to be the stars of the architecture and design history. But the (his)story of the Bauhaus remains male dominated. Its female contributors are largely unknown, even though much of the credit for the school’s innovative potential belongs to women. The documentary is an homage to the forgotten women of Bauhaus.
