The Students of Famous Bauhaus Instructors

ISBN: 9783775736008 (HB - E/ G)

Founded as an art school in Weimar in 1919, later relocating to Dessau and then Berlin before being forcibly closed in 1933, the Bauhaus achieved global fame. True to its motto "art and technology-a new unity," in the wake of industrialization the avant-garde there aspired to develop a formal vocabulary that would use the process of mechanical manufacturing as a creative instrument instead of availing itself solely of the reproduction of what were previously handcrafted products. As a counter-movement to the aesthetics of historicism, the Bauhaus coined a style whose imprint is still palpable in art, architecture, and design. Yet the students of famous masters such as Lyonel Feininger, Paul Klee, and Oskar Schlemmer nevertheless stand in the shadows of their teachers. Based on examples of their work from the Bauhaus Dessau Collection, their creative work-which combines Constructivist, abstract tendencies with Expressionist, Cubist, and Surrealist influences-becomes visible for the first time in this publication.
