In summer 2019, on the occasion of the Bauhaus centennial, the Museum of the Printing Arts Leipzig will show an exhibition about the Bauhaus and its precursors in the graphic arts industry, titled Druckkunst 1919 (“Art of Printing 1919”).
With a cross-section through the year 1919, the exhibition uses the example of posters, printed advertising materials, company logos, (trade) magazines, books, typefaces and product designs to show how innovative the printing industry and commercial art in Germany were shortly after the end of the First World War. Even before the founding of the Bauhaus, the art of printing shaped and decisively influenced the view of modern design.
