Bauhaus Magazine issue 8 – Movement
Bauhaus Dessau Foundation (Ed.)
With texts by Ross Anders, Regina Bittner, Paul Nolte, Gabi Schillig, Sasha Waltz
bauhaus 8 is given over to the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation’s annual theme for 2016: Movement. Its focus is on new departures in society, change and speed, migration and mobility as well as art and dynamism, architecture and performance, flights of fancy and locomotor systems. In bauhaus 8 we encounter Kandinsky on a bicycle, Moholy-Nagy’s Vision in Motion, Paul Klee overcoming gravity, Gropius’s writing desk in exile, and Karla Grosch’s programme of physical education at the Bauhaus as well as numerous other protagonists. The annual publication combines historical views with the contemporary positions of designers, artists, acrobats, choreographers, curators, and photographers. In the process it moves from the Bauhaus Building in Dessau to the Van Nelle Factory in Rotterdam, to the festival stage at the Festspielhaus Hellerau, to Lawn Road Flats in London, and other venues. A collection of essays, interviews, portraits, collages, illustrations, and artistic contributions.

Bauhaus Magazine issue 9 – Substance
What is the substance of the Bauhaus? What is the essence of things in the age of immateriality? Why are artists, designers and scientists increasingly interested in materials? What are the materials of the future? The Bauhaus magazine 9 deals with the topic of substance.
Bauhaus Magazine issue 7 – Collective
Architects, artists, graphic designers, craftsmen and textile and theatre designers: they all came together at the Bauhaus to design for a new world. In doing so, they pursued the principle that all learning, experimentation, invention and work had to be collective.
