This book is made in collaboration with the Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum für Gestaltung in Berlin, the world’s largest collection on the history of the Bauhaus. Some 550 illustrations inclingarchitectural plans, sties, photographs, sketches, and models record not only the realized works but also the leading principles and personalities of this idealistic creative communitythrough its three successive locations in Weimar, Dessau, and Berlin. From informal shots of group gymnastics to drawings guided by Paul Klee, from extensive architectural plans to an infinitely sleek ashtray by Marianne Brandt, the collection brims with the colors, materials, and geometries that made up the Bauhaus vision of a “total” work of art.
As we approach the Bauhaus centennial, this is a defining account of its energy and rigor, not only as a trailblazing movement in modernism but also as a paradigm of art education, where creative expression and cutting-edge ideas led to simultaneously functional and beautiful creations. Featured artists incle Josef Albers, Marianne Brandt, Walter Gropius, Gertr Grunow, Paul Klee, Lwig Mies van der Rohe, and Lilly Reich.
