bauhaus imaginista. A School in the World
Marion von Osten and Grant Watson (Ed.)
bauhaus imaginista. A School in the World traces the history of the international impact and reception of the Bauhaus’s practices and teachings against the backdrop of major geopolitical transitions of the 20th century. It focuses on the mutual dialog and exchange of the Bauhaus, its students and teachers with non-European modernists in places like India, Japan, China, Russia, Brazil and the United States. Following the four large-scale exhibition and project chapters Corresponding With, Learning From, Moving Away and Still Undead and based on a multi-year research project, the volume sweepingly examines the reception history of the Bauhaus and its global impact, which still continues today.
