    Timeless modernity

    100 Years of Bauhaus - revised and updated edition of the Bauhaus bestseller

    In a short period of just fourteen years between the two world wars, the German art and design school Bauhaus changed the face of modernism. With utopian ideals for the future, it developed a groundbreaking fusion of art, craft and technology, which it implemented across all creative media and methods, from film to theater, from sculpture to pottery.

    This reference work was produced in collaboration with the Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum für Gestaltung in Berlin, the world's largest collection on the history of the Bauhaus. Over 250 new photographs, writings, studies, sketches, plans and models not only document the realized works, they also bring the spirit of Bauhaus back to life. From informal shots of group gymnastics to drawings from Paul Klee's lessons, from detailed construction plans to a sleek ashtray by Marianne Brandt - they are all testimonies to an idealistic creative community determined to completely rethink design and shape a better future for modern people.

    The book shows Bauhaus not only as a pioneering movement of modernism, but also as a prime example of an art education in which creative expression and forward-looking ideas led to products that were both beautiful and functional. The artists featured include Josef Albers, Marianne Brandt, Walter Gropius, Gertrud Grunow, Paul Klee, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich.
