A beautiful publication featuring unique photographs and documents looks at the cultural and historical context of Germany’s legendary Bauhaus school. This important center of avant-garde learning, whose teachers included artists such as Walter Gropius, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Josef Albers, László Moholy-Nagy and Adolf Meyer, was a place of meeting and mutual inspiration for artists, designers and architects who would later go on to fundamentally influence the shape and direction of 20th-century art. Thanks to many years of intense research, art historian Markéta Svobodová has managed to provide a captivating portrait of the Bauhaus’s inimitable atmosphere and above all the creative environment in the fields of art, design and architecture, into which the school’s Czechoslovak students injected their own original ideas and progressive techniques. For many of these students, this book is the first time their work has been given scholarly attention.
