Women of the Bauhaus
The Bauhaus is considered the home of the avant-garde and is a symbol of modernity. Today, over 100 years after it was founded, the Bauhaus masters are the stars of architecture and design history. But the history of the Bauhaus is a male hero and to this day the women artists are in the shadow of their colleagues. With his manifesto, Gropius not only wanted to create a radically new design, but also to try out the construction of an open, modern society - with the promise of real equality between the sexes.
But how did women really fare at the Bauhaus? The film takes a completely new look at the Bauhaus myth and tells its story from a different perspective. From that of the women who came to the Bauhaus with the promise of a new, liberated life and work full of illusions and hopes - and who collided with old role models.
