The Foundation Board of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation has once again confirmed at today's special meeting the intention to erect the new building of the Bauhaus Museum at City Park. Furthermore, the Foundation Board decided about the exhibition and communication concept for the Bauhaus Museum as a basis for further proceedings. In addition, the committee agreed on the further competition process and instructed the Director to apply, by secured total funding, for an open two-phase competition of the new building project. The Foundation Board recommended nine professionals for the Advisory Board of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation (among others Ute Eskildsen - Professor of Photography in Essen, Daniel Hug - Director of the Art Cologne, and Prof. Dr. Martino Stierli - Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at MoMA in New York).
