German Design 1949–1989. Two Countries, One History

Special Exhibition

German design was put on the map in the 1920s by the Bauhaus school and the Werkbund association. After the division of Germany in 1949, design and everyday culture, too, went their separate ways on both sides of the border. In the West, design became a driving force in the "Wirtschaftswunder" while in the East it was absorbed into the socialist planned economy.
