The Bauhaus at the Newsstand
die neue linie 1929–1943
in cooperation with Stiftung Weimarer Klassik und dem bauhaus-archiv, Museum für Gestaltung, Berlin
Between 1929 and 1943 “die neue linie” (the new line) was published by Beyer Press in Leipzig. An outstanding lifestyle magazine of its time, superficially it provided only luxurious entertainment. However it had a progressive and forward-looking concept compared to other mass media: no other publication was so consistent in bringing avant-garde typographic ideas to a mass audience; leading graphic designers from the field of Bauhaus had a decisive effect on the look of the magazine. And despite media conformity, the modern Bauhaus signature – a style hated by the Nazi regime up to and during the Second World War – was largely spared the sanctions of the dictatorship. This publication illustrates the turbulent times of the magazine “die neue linie” and its era and is published as an abridged, revised and now bilingual edition of the bestseller from 2007, delivering another precious contribution to the Bauhaus Year 2009.

Fotografie in der Weimarer Republik
Die Jahre der Weimarer Republik zwischen 1918 und 1933 spielten für die Entwicklung der künstlerischen Fotografie und dem qualitätvollen Fotojournalismus eine einzigartige Rolle. Von Revolution und Republik zu Tanz und Mode, von Neuem Sehen, Dada und Architektur zu Arbeiterfotografie, Technik oder Sport tritt die wechselvolle Geschichte jener Jahre ins Bild.
Bauhaus and America
The Bauhaus stage was a modern, interdisciplinary laboratory for experiments with light and movement. Taking this as the main starting point, this exhibition examines, for the first time, the many artistic interactions with light and movement by former Bauhaus students and Americans – from light and kinetic art, to experimental films, dance and performance art. The book provides a comprehensive insight into the artistic life of America post-1945, as influenced by the Bauhaus.
