Theater of The Bauhaus: An Illustrated Guide to Total Art from 1925

0

The Bauhaus, Germany’s influential art, design and architecture school, thought performance and function should be united to form part of the whole art experience.

In 1925, the short-lived movement (1919 – 1933) published The Theatre of the Bauhaus (Die Bühne im Bauhaus). With words and illustrations by some of the school’s best known original members — Walter Gropius, Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy and Josef Albers, among others — this Bauhaus (building house) book outlined a vision for the visual arts. The work on theatrical performance and performance spaces features some gorgeous illustrations, and describes a theater stripped of history, moralism, scenery and narrative. You can see the pictures below.
