About this title

Synopsis:

Designs of the time: The most famous art school of modernity   In a fleeting fourteen year period, sandwiched between two world wars, Germany’s Bauhaus school of art and design changed the face of modernity. With utopian ideals for the future, the school developed a pioneering fusion of fine art, craftsmanship, and technology to be applied across painting, sculpture, design, architecture, film, photography, textiles, ceramics, theatre, and installation.

As much an intense personal community as a publicly minded collective, the Bauhaus was first founded by Walter Gropius (1883–1969), and counted Josef and Anni AlbersWassily KandinskyPaul KleeOskar Schlemmer,Gunta Stölzl, Marianne Brandt and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe among its members. Between its three successive locations in Weimar, Dessau and Berlin, the school fostered charistmatic and creative exchange between teachers and students, all varied in their artistic styles and preferences, but united in their idealism and their interest in a “total” work of art across different practices and media.

This book celebrates the adventurous innovation of the Bauhaus movement, both as a trailblazer in the development of modernism, and as a paradigm of art education, where an all-encompassing freedom of creative expression and cutting-edge ideas led to functional and beautiful creations.   About the Series:
Each book in TASCHEN’s Basic Architecture Series features:

  • an introduction to the life and work of the architect
  • the major works in chronological order
  • information about the clients, architectural preconditions as well as construction problems and resolutions
  • a list of all the selected works and a map indicating the locations of the best and most famous buildings
  • approximately 120 illustrations (photographs, sketches, drafts and plans)
