Description

In a fleeting 14-year period between two world wars, Germany’s  Bauhaus school of art and design changed the face of modernity. With  utopian ideas for the future, the school developed a pioneering fusion  of fine art, craftsmanship, and technology, which they applied across  media and practices from film to theater, and sculpture to ceramics.  This reference work 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 575 illustrations  including architectural plans, studies, photographs, sketches, and  models record not only the realized works but also the leading  principles and personalities of this idealistic creative community  through 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. 

 Part of the Bibliotheca Universalis series.
