Publisher's description: "How are we to live in a way that is healthy and economical?" Ernst Jahn's 1928 film of the same name provided one answer in the kitchen of the Gropius House completely equipped with the latest domestic appliances.

In Housekeeping, the newest exhibition and catalog in the series from the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, the project takes another look at the original research in light of the 21st century. Numerous contributions, conversations, ideas and projects rethink how we live in a time of global warming, limited resources and rising costs.
