On 13.8.2019 our excursion will take place in cooperation with the Gutenberg Foundation. This year we will travel together by bus to Darmstadt. We will leave Mainz around 8:30 am. For those who do not come from Mainz, there is the possibility to join us in Darmstadt. Our first guided tour starts at 10 am and takes place in the branch office for type casting, typesetting and printing (Kirschenallee 88, 64293 Darmstadt). In the "active" museum, honorary typesetters and printers demonstrate working techniques on the basis of numerous functional machines, which vividly document the transition from manual work to machine work in the printing trade from the beginning of the 19th century to the 1970s.
After lunch we will visit the Institut Mathildenhöhe. There, as part of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, an exhibition will be presented in the Museum Künstlerkolonie, illustrating the significance of Mathildenhöhe for the development of the Bauhaus and post-war architecture.
