Several decades after its inception, the Bauhaus style still emanates vitality. This volume provides insight into the historical, cultural, philosophical, and political background of the 1930s, when the Bauhaus was founded. It portrays the famous Bauhaus directors and teachers and describes their signature teaching methods. Finally, the authors take readers inside individual workshops, where they can discover the unique wealth of forms and ideas that remain the hallmark of Bauhaus products.
This book contributes to current discourse on the Bauhaus as a “fixed star of the avant-garde,” its wealth of pictorial material (some of which has never before been published), as well as the rich variety of topics it addresses, offers a comprehensive look at one of the most significant institutions in the history of modern art and culture. By Jeannine Fiedler and Peter Feierabend.
