Bauhaus – the little world of “Bauhaus”
The members of the Bauhaus considered themselves not just as art reformers (as it was in other art-schools in Germany that were reformed) but as societal reformers. Many of them were part of the post-war Expressionist movement and so, the Expressionist design of the handcrafted items, that were produced in the early years of the Bauhaus, represented the new utopian hopes of the era.
The lecture follows the Bauhaus from its foundation and its initial “manifesto” by Walter Gropius until the school was closed by the NAZI-regime in 1933. View on the Bauhaus against the background of its changing teaching programmes.
