original bauhaus workbook

Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum für Gestaltung (Ed.)
by Friederike Holländer und Nina Wiedemeyer

“Breath shorthand”, “drawing after slides”, “hole in paper” are exercises from the Bauhaus teachings. We discovered them as marginal notes on drawings, incidental mentions in letters of gratitude from students to their former teachers, or as references in the latters’ publications.
On the occasion of the centenary exhibition original bauhaus, we are publishing a book with 50 exercises from the preliminary course: the famous, influential, loved and rejected pedagogical concept, whose meaning and practice continue to be a topic of discussion at art schools today.
