Despite being shut down by the Nazis after just fourteen years in existence, the Bauhaus art school stands as one of the defining movements of modern history. This book introduces the school’s commitment to creative expression, cutting-edge ideas, and the combination of fine art and technology in a utopian future.

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 SchlemmerGunta Stölzl, Marianne Brandt and Ludwig Mies van der Roheamong its members. Between its three successive locations in Weimar, Dessau and Berlin, the school fostered charismatic 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.
