Abstract:

The biggest Bauhaus exhibition in the UK in over 40 years presents the modern world's most famous art & crafts school. From expressionist beginnings to a pioneering model uniting art and technology, this London exhibition presents the Bauhaus' utopian vision to change society in the aftermath of the First World War. "Bauhaus: Art as Life" explores the diverse artistic production that made up its turbulent fourteen-year history and delves into the subjects at the heart of the school: art, culture, life, politics and society, and the changing technology of the age. "Bauhaus: Art as Life" features a rich array of painting, sculpture, design, architecture, film, photography, textiles, ceramics, theatre and installation. Exemplar works from such Bauhaus Masters as Josef and Anni Albers, Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Hannes Meyer, László Moholy-Nagy, Oskar Schlemmer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Gunta Stölzl, will be presented alongside works by lesser-known Bauhaus artists and students.--Koenig Books.
