The Bauhaus: Modernism in Art, Architecture, and Design

Though active for a scant two decades, the Bauhaus has had a continuing influence on modern society so fundamental and pervasive that we almost fail to notice it. The School’s importance in modern architecture and design is well known but not limited to those fields. Bauhaus teachers and students—Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy, and Marianne Brandt, among others—made significant innovations in their fields, including painting, weaving, typography, metalwork, book design, and ceramics. This course explores the historical, aesthetic, and ideological background of the Bauhaus. We then focus on the variety of media in which Bauhaus artists worked—architecture, design, painting, weaving, and typography—and also on the role of women in the Bauhaus, an area of increasing academic interest.
