A Bauhaus Library

The Bauhaus school of art and design, which operated from 1919 to 1933, gathered a staggering array of talent--some of the twentieth century’s foremost artists, architects and designers--and offered a laboratory in which to completely overhaul the look and feel of modern life, from textiles to typography, from painting to photography, from epic architectural projects right down to the design of a door handle. Anni Albers, Josef Albers, Walter Gropius, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee and László Moholy-Nagy are just a handful of the great names associated with the school, whose influence continues to this day.

Recommended Reading: A Book List on The Bauhaus School

NEW PUBLICATION

Paul Klee: Life and Work

Text by Michael Baumgartner, Christine Hopfengart, Fabienne Eggelhöfer, Osama Okuda.

The many books on Paul Klee (1879-1940) published over the years should not obscure the fact that there has been no new, comprehensive Klee overview since Will Grohmann’s oft-reprinted 1954 monograph. With Paul Klee: Life and Work, the Zentrum Paul Klee has set out to fill this gap, drawing on a wealth of new resources including the Klee family’s archives, much of which is published here for the first time.

Life and work are truly integrated in this massive, 344-page volume: Klee’s vast body of work is surveyed chronologically, as the book narrates his life alongside the abundant reproductions of drawings, . . . .go to book page >>

Adolf Meyer, Walter Gropius & Georg Muche: A Bauhaus Experimental House

Edited by Walter Gropius, László Moholy-Nagy.

Adolf Meyer (1881-1929) was Walter Gropius’ right-hand man, his planner and close confidant. As early as 1910, they jointly created the Fagus Factory, one of the most important modernist buildings. The experimental single-family home, Haus am Horn,” was built for the first Bauhaus exhibition, in the summer of 1923 in Weimar. The house was designed by Georg Muche and the architectural department at the Bauhaus. Adolf Meyer and Walter March were responsible for construction management.

The book describing the project was compiled in the summer of 1924 and became the third volume of the Bauhausbücher. Following an essay by Walter Gropius . . . .go to book page >>

Oskar Schlemmer, László Moholy-Nagy & Farkas Molnár: The Theater of the Bauhaus

Edited by Walter Gropius, László Moholy-Nagy.

The Bauhaus revolution left no discipline untouched, and the new conceptions of theater and stage design developed by Oskar Schlemmer, László Moholy-Nagy and their students were especially transformative, unprecedented and influential. Published as the fourth Bauhaus publication in 1925, The Theater of the Bauhaus was the ultimate statement on Bauhaus theater. Addressing everything from stage design to costume, spatial dynamics and choreography to the human body, and abundantly illustrated with documentation of performances and diagrams, the book presents an energetic vision of a total art.

Bauhaus theater was essentially shaped by Schlemmer, who had taken over the stage department in 1923. . . . .go to book page >>

Walter Gropius: New Works from Bauhaus Workshops

Edited by Walter Gropius, László Moholy-Nagy.

The Bauhaus sought to unite life, craftsmanship and art under one coherent ethos and aesthetic. In New Works from Bauhaus Workshops—the seventh of the Bauhaus’ publications—the institute’s founder, Walter Gropius (1888-1969), provides a comprehensive overview of the Bauhaus workshops. He explains the basic principles guiding the teaching, describes contemporary developments in architecture and illuminates the Bauhaus point of view on household utensils, which was geared toward finding the most suitable form for the respective object. Here, Gropius presents the Bauhaus workshops in Weimar devoted to furniture, metals, textiles and ceramics, among other subjects.

Theo van Doesburg: Principles of Neo-Plastic Art

Edited by Walter Gropius, László Moholy-Nagy.

Painter, writer, architect, typographer, art theorist and leader of the De Stijl movement, Theo van Doesburg (1883-1931) was one of the great modernist polymaths, and in this volume of the Bauhausbücher, he attempts to make elementary concepts in the visual arts generally comprehensible for a broad audience.

Van Doesburg’s book addresses the modern artist” of his day, who had to deal with both shifting social paradigms and a changing understanding of art and art theory. Unifying a range of disciplines, van Doesburg describes theory as a necessary consequence of creative practice: artists, he says, do not write about art but from . . . .go to book page >>

Handle with Care: Unpacking a Bulky Table

Text by Lisa Andreani, Simon Mitchel, Hanan Kataw, Roxanna Brands, Marianna Mitchell, Louise Rietvink, Gabriela Szalanska, Mara Trübenbach, Regina Bittner.

In 1936, Hungarian-born Bauhaus designer Marcel Lajos Breuer (1902-81) used cut and bent plywood to fashion a prototype of a wide, soft-edged table for the Isokon Furniture Company in London. Today a fixture of the Bauhaus collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum and an emblem of the movement’s furniture design sensibilities, Breuer’s table presents an interesting curatorial conundrum: what happens to an everyday object when it becomes part of a museum collection

This book investigates the material stories, social practices and various phases of commodification and ownership represented by this single object. Delving into the detailed history behind Breuer’s table . . . .go to book page >>
