Dance the Bauhaus
Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau (Ed.), Torsten Blume
Admiring the architecture of a building that inevitably amazes anyone who witnesses it, the photographs and text in this volume document the Bauhaus school, articulating how the interplay of natural and artificial light form a special aspect of the structure’s aesthetic. The façade of steel and glass is examined in detail, revealing how it seemingly melts into the heavens when seen from a certain vantage point. Conveying a multi-faceted interpretation of a heretofore undocumented aspect of the Bauhaus aesthetic, this consideration is ideal for architects, students of art and architecture, and interested laymen. This edition includes English and German.

Die Bauhaus-Debatte 1953
Die bissige Attacke, die Rudolf Schwarz 1953 gegen Gropius und das Bauhaus führte, hat, was polemische Schärfe wie vor allem auch deren Auswirkung betrifft, hierzulande kaum ihresgleichen.
Point and Line to Plane
Point and Line to Plane, volume 9 of the Bauhausbücher series, can be seen as a continuation of Wassily Kandinsky's seminal treatise On the Spiritual in Art. Kandinsky's thesis is that different constellations of point, line and surface have different emotional effects on the viewer.
