The great departure
From Weimar into the world – the Bauhaus myth
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, she developed a groundbreaking fusion of art, craft and technology, which she implemented across all creative media and methods, from film to theater, from sculpture to pottery.
This reference work was created in cooperation with the Bauhaus Archive/Museum for Design 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 work that has been carried out, they also bring the Bauhaus spirit back to life. From casual shots of group gymnastics to drawings from Paul Klee's lessons, from detailed building plans to a sleek ashtray by Marianne Brandt - they are all testimonies of an idealistic creative community determined to completely rethink design and a better future for modern people to shape people.
The book shows Bauhaus not only as a groundbreaking 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 at the same time. This handy edition introduces artists such as Josef Albers, Marianne Brandt, Walter Gropius, Gertrud Grunow, Paul Klee, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Lilly Reich and many others.
