The Non-objective World
Edited by Walter Gropius, László Moholy-Nagy (original series), Lars Müller (English edition) in collaboration with Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum für Gestaltung, Berlin
Design: László Moholy-Nagy (original German edition)
Kasimir Malevich’s treatise on Suprematism was included in the Bauhausbücher series in 1927, as was Piet Mondrian’s reflections on Russian Constructivism in 1925 (New Design, Bauhausbücher 5). Like Mondrian, who was never an official member of the Bauhaus, Malevich nevertheless has a close connection to the ideas of the school in terms of content. This volume, the eleventh, remains the only book publication in Germany to be produced during the life of the Russian avant-garde artist, and it laid the foundation for his late work: to wrest the mask of life from the true face of art.

Picture Journal for the Age
In the 1920s, the announcements of the legendary series of “Bauhaus Books” always spoke of a “picture journal for the age”. László Moholy-Nagy toyed with the idea of a critical survey of contemporary magazine productions. This book now asks the question of how the planned “Bauhaus Book” might have argued its case.
Design Rehearsals – Conversations about Bauhaus Lessons
In a time of crisis for the traditional educational canon and knowledge systems, the works of students taught by Josef Albers, László Moholy-Nagy, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Gunta Stölzl and Oskar Schlemmer illustrate their many-faceted exploratory movements towards creative expression in art and design.
