Made in collaboration with the Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum für Gestaltung in Berlin, this book presents the largest collection on the history of the Bauhaus, including original documents, studies, photographs, sketches, plans, and models. The book follows the history of the monumental art and design school from its origins in Weimar to its later moves to Dessau and Berlin. From informal shots of group gymnastics to drawings from a class taught by Paul Klee, from extensive architectural plans to an infinitely sleek ashtray by Marianne Brandt, the collection pulsates with the colors, materials, and geometries that made up the Bauhaus vision of a “total” work of art.
