bauhaus journal 1926-1931
One hundred years after the founding of Bauhaus, it’s time to revisit bauhaus journal as significant written testimony of this iconic movement of modern art. In this journal, published periodically from 1926 to 1931, the most important voices of the movement are heard: masters of the Bauhaus, among others, Josef Albers, Walter Gropius, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy, and Oskar Schlemmer, as well as Herbert Bayer, Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Gerrit Rietveld, and many more.
This volume shows, in over 80 unique photographs—taken in the still empty rooms immediately after the general renovation of 1996–2006—the transparency and lightness of an exceptionally sensate modern architecture, whose surprising and bold colouration debunks the myth of a “white Modernism”.
