Story

100 years after the founding of the Bauhaus in 1919, Bauhaus and America explores the intersections between the iconic German art, design, and architecture school and the culture of the U.S.A. after WWII. This expansive book identifies the Bauhaus stage as a key influence — an interdisciplinary laboratory of sorts, it provided a space for artistic experiments of all kinds. When the rise of German National Socialism forced the Bauhaus to close in 1933, its members scattered — many to America — bringing their experimental ethos with them. Works by the likes of Josef Albers, Lszl Moholy-Nagy, Wassily Kandinsky, Xanti Schawinsky, Oskar Schlemmer and Andor Weininger are presented alongside images of the many American artists impacted by the Bauhaus legacy.
