"The dynamism of the Bauhaus still fascinates us today, 80 years after its foundation and brief 14-year existence. With its roots in the Arts and Crafts movement, influenced by the German Werkbund and other reformist currents of thought, the Bauhaus was founded in 1919 and rapidly became known far beyond the borders of Germany, not least as a result of its great exhibition of 1923, launched under the slogan, "Art and Technology -- a New Unity." Particularly exciting was the school's famous preliminary course and a pedagogic concept which proposed an incisive blend of practical work and theoretical teaching. Under the Weimar Republic the Bauhaus became the focus of a redical modern way of life, the catalyst of a completely new aproach to living. Anti-academic attitudes. communal living. free love. delight in creative experiementation. Researchers in art and cultural history continue to devote themselves to the Bauhaus institution with undiminished interest, forever finding new questions to ask," (front flap).
