Bauhaus

Art as Life

Text by Kathleen James-Chakraborty, Eva Forgas, Catherine Ince, Anya Baumhoff, Philip Oswalt, Philip Ursprung, Melissa Trimmingham, Nicholas Fox Weber, Klaus Weber, Lydia Yee, Wolfgang Thöner.

Bauhaus: Art as Life explores the diverse artistic production and turbulent 14-year history of the modern world’s most famous art school. Accompanying the biggest Bauhaus exhibition in the United Kingdom in more than 40 years, this catalogue features a rich array of painting, sculpture, design, architecture, film, photography, textiles, ceramics, theatre and installation, ranging from the school’s Expressionist beginnings to its pioneering utopian model of uniting art and technology in order to change society in the aftermath of the First World War. Exemplary works from such Bauhaus masters as Josef and Anni Albers, Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Hannes Meyer, László Moholy-Nagy, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Gunta Stölzl are presented alongside works by lesser-known artist masters and Bauhaus students. Through a range of specially commissioned essays, Bauhaus traces the life of the school from its founding by Walter Gropius in Weimar in 1919 to its relocation to its newly built campus in Dessau in 1925 under the direction of Gropius and then Hannes Meyer, and finally its brief period in Berlin, under the leadership of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and through its dramatic closure in 1933 by the Nazis. The catalogue also includes a series of original writings by Bauhaus artists, drawn from previously published texts and personal correspondence.
