Vkhutemas, often referred to as the Russian Bauhaus, was a legendary art school of Modernism in the 1920s. This is the first exhibition in Germany to show an important sampling of the work, mainly focused on architecture. On display will be some 250 items: sketches, drawings, paintings, and models. The Higher Artistic-Technical Workshops were founded in 1920 by decree of the Soviet government: in eight faculties divided into production workshops (Wood, Metal, Textiles, Printmaking, Ceramics) and art workshops (Painting, Sculpture, Architecture), several thousand students received instruction. The staff of the school consisted of famous artists and architects whose names are associated with the heyday of the Russian avant-garde.
