In 1919, the program of the State Bauhaus promised a modern education for the talented, regardless of age and gender, which drew many young women to apply. The "Bauhaus-Girl Type," described in a January 1930 issue of the magazine The Week, knew what she wanted and would succeed. This volume’s essays question the euphoria of the time period with the knowledge of Bauhaus members’ subsequent destinies. These essays take as exemplary the biographies of Gertrud Arndt, Marianne Brandt, Margarete Heymann, and Margaretha Reichardt, both during their training and as Bauhaus graduates.
