Genius and total work of art
The most famous modern art school
Between two world wars, in just 14 years, the Bauhaus changed modernity. Guided by utopian ideals, the school of art and design brought together art, craft and technology and applied this holistic concept to painting, sculpture, design, architecture, film, photography, textile design, pottery, theater and installation.
The artist collective with an external impact was at the same time a close personal community. The school was founded by Walter Gropius (1883-1969) and its members included Josef and Anni Albers, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer, Gunta Stölzl, Marianne Brandt and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. At all three consecutive locations of the school in Weimar, Dessau and Berlin, there was a lively creative exchange between the students and teachers, who all cultivated different artistic styles and preferences, but were united in their idealism and the striving for a "total work of art".
This volume celebrates the innovative power of the Bauhaus movement, which fueled modernism with its avant-garde ideas and in art education focused on comprehensive freedom of artistic expression and the combination of function and aesthetics.
