About The Bauhaus Center
Bauhaus Center Tel Aviv was established in 2000 by Dr. Asher Ben-Shmuel, Shlomit Gross and Dr. Micha Gross. Its goal is to expand public recognition of the “White City” as a unique architectural and cultural site.
To achieve this, the center holds a gallery with a permanent collection and changing exhibitions, conducts tours of the city and is a publisher dedicated to the Bauhaus subject.

What Is Bauhaus?
The Bauhaus was a school which operated in Germany between 1919 and 1933 and was devoted to art, architecture and design. The ideas and visual concepts developed at the Bauhaus School had a lasting influence on the urban planning and architecture in Israel – especially visible until today in Tel Aviv.
