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.
