The Bauhaus comes from Weimar and will return to a new house in spring 2019. In the newly built Bauhaus Museum Weimar, the treasures of the oldest Bauhaus collection in the world will be on display for the first time as a closed group. However, the volume not only presents design icons, but also allows a glimpse behind the façade of the Bauhaus myth by means of numerous other objects. Not as a museum guide in the classical sense, but as a thematic volume on core issues of the Bauhaus era such as the New Man or the design of everyday life, the official volume on the new Bauhaus Museum Weimar opens up new perspectives on the Bauhaus. Using central aspects of the exhibition as examples, the general question then and now arises: "How do we want to live? The Bauhaus idea is examined for its potential for shaping the present and is located as part of a local and global network. More detailed information encourages further thinking. The book also sheds light on the architectural concept, construction process and urban planning criteria of Heike Hanada's new museum building.
