Jean Molitor

bau1haus: die moderne in der welt / modernism around the globe

ISBN: 9783775744683 (HB - E/ G)

The Bauhaus legacy: Jean Molitor tracks down a legend. A century after the founding of the Bauhaus-probably the most popular and yet controversial art school in Weimar- its name has become a byword, as well as a myth. Entire generations have been confronted with, and socialized by, the factual, down-to-earth, and functional Bauhaus architecture. Trailblazers, allies, and heirs to modernism are united by an architectural language generally described as "Bauhaus." The Bauhaus legacy, which the photographer Jean Molitor has been tracking around the world since 2009, is presented here in this catalogue. In his art project bau1haus Molitor focuses on the buildings' aesthetics. He sees them as the central element in an epoch-making movement in architecture, art, and design, which evolved from Art Nouveau/ Jugendstil into modernism, and his pictures make it possible to perceive this global connection clearly.
