Today in History: Opening of the Bauhaus in 1919

On March 21, 1919, the Bauhaus, a German design school founded in Weimar by Walter Gropius, opened its doors. Its goal was to create a new unity between art and industry, allowing people from the sectors of the decorative arts, architecture and modern technology to work together and learn from one another. The school moved to Dessau in 1925 and to Berlin in 1932 and was closed in July of 1933 by its own staff under pressure from the Nazi government.

Today on History: Josef Müller-Brockmann born in 1914

Josef Müller-Brockmann studied architecture, design and history of art at the Kunstgewerbeschule and the University in Zurich. At the age of 22, he opened his own studio with a focus on graphic design, exhibition design and photography. His objective design practices led to the breakthrough of the “Swiss Style” during the 1950s. In 1958, Müller-Brockmann became the founder and co-editor (until 1965) of the journal Neue Grafik (New Graphic Design), spreading the principles of Swiss Design internationally. Müller-Brockmann never allowed his designs to be influenced by trends or styles but followed his own aesthetics and ethics. His posters provided numerous institutions and companies with a convincing graphic appearance and became a model in their quality. Müller-Brockmann passed away on August 30, 1996 in Zurich.

Today in History: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart born in 1791

260 years ago today, the prolific and influential composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 – 1791) was born in Salzburg, Austria. Mozart’s father Leopold recognized and furthered his son’s musical genius early on. At the age of six, Wolfgang Amadeus was already a sensation on the piano and the violin. At age nine, he composed his first opera – “Apollo and Hyacinthus.” At 13, he was appointed “concert master“ by the Archbishop of Salzburg, performing before European royalty. In 1781 Mozart moved from Salzburg to Vienna where he worked as an independent composer, achieving fame but little financial security. During the last decade of his life, he composed many of his best-known symphonies and operas, including parts of his unfinished Requiem. Mozart died at his home in Vienna on December 5, 1791. The circumstances of his early death have been the source of much debate. Mozart was survived by his wife Constance and two sons.
