14th-19th May 2019: Northern Germany

Dr Leon Lock is planning a wide-ranging tour, which will study important Deutscher Werkbund, Jugendstil and Modernist sites and collections in Hagen, Darmstadt, Karlsruhe and Stuttgart. It starts in Hagen, the home of noted art and architecture patron Karl Ernst Osthaus. In Darmstadt the focus is on the artists’ colony founded by Ernst Ludwig, Grand Duke of Hesse and now a Unesco World Heritage Site. In Karlsruhe we will visit the Majolica Museum and the Badisches Landes Museum. The programme finishes in Stuttgart at the Weisenhof Siedlung, a housing estate built for the 1927 Werkbund Exhibition under the direction of Mies van der Rohe.
