“Architects, sculptors, painters, we all must return to the crafts,” the architect Walter Gropius wrote in his Bauhaus manifesto. Founded in 1919, the Bauhaus was an art school that established itself as a major influence on 20th-century art.
The school, a focal point and synthesis between art, crafts and industry, finds a strong resonance in the commitment of the Hermès Foundation, sponsor of the exhibition, which, through its many programs, is deeply involved in creative endeavours and their transmission.
