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 book is made in collaboration with the Bauhaus-Archiv \/Museum f\u00FCr Gestaltung in Berlin, the world\'s largest collection on the history of the Bauhaus. Documents, studies, more than 250 new photographs, sketches, plans, 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. 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 include Josef Albers, Marianne Brandt, Walter Gropius, Gertrud Grunow, Paul Klee, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Lilly Reich. -- From publisher\'s description.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Foreword to the new 2019 edition -- On the origins of Bauhaus -- Weimar Bauhaus: expressionist Bauhaus -- Teachers -- Johannes Itten and his teaching -- The workshops -- Party - work - play -- Women at the Bauhaus -- Architecture teaching and estate planning -- The Gropius-Itten conflict -- The Weimar Bauhaus between political fronts -- Art and technology: a new unity -- De Stijl at the Bauhaus -- Paul Klee\'s classes -- Wassily Kandinsky\'s classes -- The pottery workshop -- The textile workshop -- The metal workshop -- The furniture workshop -- The stained-glass and mural-painting workshop -- The wood-carving and stone-sculpture workshops -- The bookbinding workshop -- The graphic printing workshop -- Theatre at the Weimar Bauhaus -- Bauhaus Exhibition of 1923 -- Architecture at the Weimar Bauhaus -- The strangulation of the Weimar Bauhaus -- Dessau Bauhaus: Institute of Design -- The Bauhaus building in Dessau -- Masters\' houses -- T\u00F6rten estate -- School reforms of 1925 and 1927 -- Bauhaus books - Bauhaus journal -- Preliminary courses by Josef Albers and L\u00E1szl\u00F3 Moholy-Nagy in Dessau -- Classes by Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky -- Production and teaching in the workshops -- The printing and advertising workshop -- The textile workshop -- The joinery, metal, mural-painting an sculpture workshops -- Theatre at the Dessau Bauhaus -- Difficult times 1926\/27 -- The resignation of Walter Gropius -- Hannes Meyer: necessities, not luxuries -- Reorganisation of the Bauhaus -- Reorganisation of the workshops -- Workshop for interior design - joinery -- Workshop for interior design - metal -- Workshop for interior design - mural-painting -- The advertising workshop -- The weaving workshop -- Theatre under Hannes Meyer -- Free painting classes -- Architecture teaching under Hannes Meyer -- The Bernau Trades Union School -- Expanding the T\u00F6rten estate -- Bauhaus achievements under Hannes Meyer -- The dismissal of Hannes Meyer -- Ludwig Mies van der Rohe: the Bauhaus becomes a school of architecture -- The new course at the Bauhaus -- Financial difficulties - political struggles -- Architecture classes by Hilberseimer and Mies van der Rohe -- Junkers estate -- The workshops for advertising and photography -- The workshops for weaving and interior design -- The political end in Dessau -- A German Bauhaus?
