The book that introduced the Bauhaus to the world: the 1923 catalog for the landmark first Bauhaus exhibition, now available in a new facsimile edition

In 1919, the state art school in Weimar was reopened as the Bauhaus, under the direction of Walter Gropius and with a radical new teaching approach. Four years later, the first Bauhaus exhibition was held, presenting the school’s novel approach to art, design and education to an enthusiastic public locally and internationally.

The catalog Staatliches Bauhaus in Weimar 1919–1923 was published in 1923 to accompany this first public showcase. This survey of the school’s transdisciplinary oeuvre put the Bauhaus idea on paper for the first time and gave a sense of its potential. Featuring numerous student and faculty projects, it also describes the theoretical doctrines of Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky and Gertrud Grunow, and thus conveys the teaching methods applied in the various workshops. Gropius’ preface explains the structure of the state-run Bauhaus and introduces its unique reform program, which called for and taught the unity of technology and art. Illustrations from the various workshops show projects by students, work that is still largely unexplored today.

With the original layout by László Moholy-Nagy and a cover designed by Herbert Bayer, this expanded facsimile edition of Staatliches Bauhaus in Weimar 1919–1923—published in Lars Müller’s XX The Century of Print series—sheds light on the work and aspirations of the Bauhaus from its earliest days. New accompanying commentary places this momentous publication, long out of print, in its historical context, documenting the Bauhaus from initial idea to the standing it would attain as a preeminent school of art and design. In this edition, the German facsimile is accompanied by the first full English translation of the catalog, making it newly accessible to an international audience.

A remarkable facsimile edition of the first Bauhaus exhibition catalog, 1923

These 1923 photographs of a sculpture by Oskar Schlemmer are reproduced from Lars Müllers remarkable new facsimile edition of Staatliches Bauhaus in Weimar 1919–1923, the catalog for the first Bauhaus exhibition, held the same year in Weimar under the direction of Walter Gropius. One of the most beautifully designed and historically important books on our Spring 2020 list, this 9.75 x 9.75-inch hardback volume with cover by Herbert Bayer contains several lovely papers, exquisite printing and of course the original layout and typography of László Moholy-Nagy. It comes bound in a clear slipcase with a second volume containing the first full English translation of the catalog, inside of which is also bound a small poster of Gropius's manifesto and program. "Let us aspire to, conceive, and create the new structure of the future, one which will embrace architecture and sculpture and painting as a single entity, he writes, "and which will one day rise toward heaven from the hands of a million workers like the crystal symbol of a new faith to come." continue to blog
