Enough room to play: Craft Becomes Modern: The Bauhaus in the Making

“Since mechanical weaving today is not far enough advanced to provide all the possibilities offered by hand weaving, and because these possibilities are necessary for people to develop their creativity, we deal in particular with hand weaving,” Gunta Stözl wrote in 1927. “It is only by working on a handloom that one has enough room to play, to develop an idea from one experiment to the next, until there is enough clarity and specification about the model for it to be handed over to industry for mechanical production.” Stözl’s 1928 “Jacquard Wall Hanging ‘5 Chöre’” (5 Choirs) is reproduced from Craft Becomes Modern: The Bauhaus in the Making, a beautifully designed and super-informative new book from Kerber and the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation leading up to the Bauhaus’s centennial in 2019.
