Walbaum Weekend

100 Years Bauhaus

Author: Eva Lotta Landskron

The Walbaum weekends are a series of events organized by the Printmaking Museum “Pavillon-Presse” in Weimar. They combine the imparting of theoretical knowledge with workshops in the museum.

As part of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, the 8th Walbaum Weekend from May 25th to 26th 2019 is dedicated to the essence and work of the Bauhauswith a special focus on typography. The design school is known worldwide for a supposedly certain style. But what defines this style? Where do the typographic ideas and ideals really come from? How new were they and how and by whom could they be implemented?

The weekend begins on Saturday at 10 a.m. with a guided tour of the museum, followed by a lecture by Dr. des. Dan Reynolds on the subject of “Type design in grand ducal times.” Jay Rutherford talks about the “origins of the Bauhaus,” Ralf Herrmann about “Bauhaus types.” Finally, Dr. Julia Meer will talk about “New View of New Typography.”

A Bauhaus printing workshop will take place on Sunday from 09:30 a.m., registration for which is only possible until April 19th 2019 and will become binding once the minimum number of 20 participants has been reached. The participation fee amounts to 99,– Euro (and/or 80,– for association members and 45,– for students). A maximum of 30 persons can participate.
