English text. Exhibition held at Staatsgalerie Stuttgart. Summary: The catalogue accompanying the first comprehensive Schlemmer retrospective for almost forty years presents over 250 high-quality works, in particular the seven original costumes of the Triadisches Ballett (Triadic Ballet) together with rare documents of the time. The connection between the all-encompassing attempts at reform of the Bauhaus are discussed as well as Schlemmer's vain attempts to reconcile his "unpolitical" art with the Nazi dictatorship's ideas of state-controlled art. The focus will be directed towards Schlemmer's lofty ethical demands, which always regarded man, typified as a "Kunstfigur" (artistic figure) as the "measure of all things".--www.artbooks.com.

Abstract:

Oskar Schlemmer (1888-1943) was one of the most versatile artists of the twentieth century. A member of the Bauhaus, Schlemmer created highly original works not only as a sculptor, draftsman, and graphic artist, but also as a stage designer, author, and creator of stunning dance works. Together, his projects articulated his vision of the 'new' man, living in functional architecture, thinking and acting clearly in a modern age that would never again succumb to the chaos of war. This illustrated catalogue accompanies the first comprehensive Schlemmer retrospective exhibition in nearly forty years. It presents more than 250 works - including the seven original costumes of Schlemmer's epochal 'Triadisches Ballett' - together with rare documents from the period.
