Note "This publication is published in conjunction with the exhibition Bauhaus : a conceptual model, organized by the three German Bauhaus Institutions Bauhaus-Archiv, Berlin, Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau, and Klassik Stiftung Weimar in cooperation with The Museum of Modern Art, New York."
Summary The official audio exhibition guide of the anniversary exhibition in Berlin, with a compact, illustrated volume. The Bauhaus--founded in Weimar in 1919, based from 1925 in Dessau, and ultimately closed in Berlin in 1933--has to this very day remained German culture's most influential, successful export of the twentieth century. More than seventy years after its closure, the reputation of this interdisciplinary school of art, architecture, design, and theater has not lost any of its brilliance. To celebrate the ninetieth anniversary of its founding, an extensive exhibition has been organized by three of the most important Bauhaus institutions in Germany: the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin, the Stiftung Bauhaus in Dessau, and the Bauhaus Museum of the Klassik Stiftung in Weimar. The presentation will reexamine and reevaluate the history and influence of the art school. About thirty-five selected major works from the twentieth century's most successful school of design are featured on this original audio guide through the exhibition and its companion volume, which contains full-color illustrations throughout.
