This gorgeously produced, slipcased, 14-volume publication features facsimiles of individual issues of the journal, as well as a commentary booklet including an overview of the content, English translations of all texts and a scholarly essay that places the journal in its historical context. Even during its existence, the influence of the Bauhaus school extended well beyond the borders of Europe, and its practitioners played a formative role in all areas of art, design and architecture. The school’s international reach and impact is particularly evident in its journal.
Bauhaus Journal was published periodically under the direction of Walter Gropius and László Moholy-Nagy, among others, from 1926 to 1931. In its pages, the most important voices of the movement were heard: Bauhaus masters and artists associated with the school such as Josef Albers, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer, Herbert Bayer, Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Gerrit Rietveld and many more. The centenary of the Bauhaus provides an ideal opportunity to reassess this history, to consider the ideals of the school and its protagonists through this graphically innovative publication.*
