In collaboration with the Francisco Alcántara School of Art of Ceramics, the National Museum of Decorative Arts in Madrid has organized an exhibition that features the 2018-2019 students’ final projects. The exhibition celebrates the centenary of the influential early-twentieth-century Bauhaus style and the survival of its pedagogical model. 

The exhibition is part of the museums’ Design and Pedagogy program, a collaboration with universities and design schools. It is free of charge to the public until May 31.

The Bauhaus school in Weimar sought to erase boundaries between art and craft. Notable for the use of geometric forms and primary colours of red, yellow, one of its principles, form follows function, continues to have significance for all design disciplines.
