Oskar Schlemmer. The Bauhaus and the Path to Modernism
Stiftung Schloss Friedenstein Gotha (ed.)
Painter, illustrator, graphic designer, sculptor, decorator of walls and stage sets, choreographer, author: Schlemmer was one of the most multifaceted of the modernist artists. His works embody the Bauhaus ideal of combining crafts and the fine arts, and they all pursue a vision of the future in which humans live in harmony with technological and social innovations. This book focuses on the Bauhaus master’s fascinating world of ideas, and especially on the pulsating years of the 1920s and 30s.
