By Magdalena Droste.
The authoritative reference work, now in a compact format.
In a fleeting fourteen-year period between teo 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 theatre and sculpture to ceramics. This bestselling reference work is made in collaboration with the Bauhaus-archiv/museum fur gestaltung in berlin, the world’s largest collection on the history of the Bauhaus. As we approach the Bauhaus centennial, this is a defining account of its energy and rigour, 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.
