Bauhaus Weimar from the Author: Michael Siebenbrodt. "In April 1919 Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany. Until 1925, the year it moved to Dessau, this was the meeting-place for the wide spectrum of often contradicory ideas, utopias and experiments that formed the basis of the institution's renown. With more than 400 illustrations, this book illustrates the achivements of the Weimar Bauhaus*the first time they have been given such extensive coverage in a publication. The main focus is on the outstanding works by students from all workshops, from the studies in the famous introducory cours given by Johannes Itten to the design sketches that have become classics today. Another section is dedicated to Weimar's important Bauhaus collections, especially the world's only authorised collection on the Weimar Bauhaus at the Kunstsammlungen zu Weimar, which contains more than 8000 exhibits. Finally, the original ""Bauhaus locations"" in Weimar are brought to life, such as Henry van de Veldes' art school buildings and Walter Gropius's memorial to those who died in the Revolution of 1848. Thanks to the great wealth of material, some of which is published for the first time in this book, what emerges is a colorfull, pluralistic world that contradicts the common idea of one single Bauhaus."

Bauhaus from the Author: Xavier Girard. From 1919 to 1933, in Weimar, Dessau and then Berlin, the Bauhaus (literally, "house of construction") was much more than just a professional school of a new genre--it was a modern Utopia. Painters, teaching specialists, architects, urban planners, artisans, engineers, actors, musicians, photographers and designers worked together there on a new concept of everyday life. An experimental style became dominant--bare, functional and scrupulously clear--the style of the 20th century.

Bauhaus from the Author: Jeannine Fiedler. 80 years after its inception, the Bauhaus style still emanates vitality. As a school thats combined applied art with both the fine arts and technology, the Bauhaus movement has outlasted all other trends in architecture and design. This volume provides insight into the historical, cultural, philosophical, political and pedagogical background of the 1930s, when the Bauhaus was founded. It portrays the famous Bauhaus directors and teachers and describes their signature pedagogical 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.Through its contributions 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, this book offers a comprehensive look at one of the most significant institutions in the history of modern art and culture.
