It is worth noting that the Bauhaus exhibition at the Musée des Arts décoratifs opened in October and that it took two months before the CRIF reacted.
Télérama writes: "In response to the protests against what Michel Weinfeld (the son of Jean Weinfeld, a Bauhaus architect) describes as "rather heavy clumsiness," Olivier Gabet, director of the Museum of Decorative Arts, strongly denies "addressing this serious question lightly". In the days to come, he will add to the exhibition a text stating that "this map presents a selection of achievements by a number of former professors and students of the Bauhaus after their passage at the school. It mentions places and dates in the historiography of the Bauhaus and in the biographies of each of them. The legacy and critical fortune of the Bauhaus espouses the tragic history of the 20th century, and the personal trajectories of some of its former members do not always reflect the generous and progressive ideals of this pioneering school of modernity"."
