Bauhaus : a conceptual model by Museum für Gestaltung Bauhaus-Archiv( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of Walter Gropius' guiding principles in founding the Bauhaus was that "design is neither an intellectual nor a material affair, but simply an integral part of the stuff of life, necessary for everyone in a civilized society." As a result of this ethos, Bauhaus artists and designers experimented freely with everything from painting to furniture, producing countless masterpieces in many genres. This comprehensive volume takes stock of the Bauhaus' output by highlighting 68 projects, with a particular focus on neglected aspects of the school's legacy. A different author is assigned to respond to each work, creating an inventory of celebrated and lesser-known works that helps the reader to tangibly cohere the Bauhaus' daunting achievements. Marking the ninetieth anniversary of the school's founding, this comprehensive volume, with nearly 400 color illustrations, is made possible through the collaborative efforts of three institutions: the Bauhaus-Archiv Museum of Design in Berlin, Dessau's Stiftung Bauhaus and the Bauhaus-Museum Weimar (Klassik Stiftung). Also featured are essays by the Director of the Bauhaus-Museum in Weimar, Michael Siebenbrodt, and the artist and writer, Jeff Wall."--Jacket
László Moholy-Nagy : color in transparency : photographic experiments in color 1934-1946 = Fotografische Experimente in Farbe 1934-1946 by László Moholy-Nagy( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the early twentieth-century's avant-garde, Hungarian-born photographer László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946) was one of the most ardent seekers of the "New Vision." His preoccupation with the phenomenon of light was a defining influence on every period of his work, and one of his great strengths lay in his effortless skill in translating light and spatial dimensions from one medium to another. By the time the first color photographic processes became widely available in the early 1930s, he had mastered black-and-white, and he turned immediately to this next big thing. Color proved to be one of his most important mediums, not only during his early years in Germany, but also as he reestablished himself at the New Bauhaus and the Institute of Design, both of which he initiated upon moving to the United States and settling in Chicago. Until now, with only a few exceptions, his work in color has been unknown. Color in Transparency presents 100 pieces including advertisements, portraits, urban views, New Bauhaus studies and abstract compositions--created between Moholy-Nagy's first experiments with the medium in 1934 and his death in 1946. A foreword by his daughter, Hattula Moholy-Nagy, and an essay and captions by art historian and critic Jeannine Fiedler, along with a chronology and bibliography, elucidate the history of this appealing and accessible area of Moholy-Nagy's work, as well as its significance in his oeuvre

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Egon Eiermann was one of Germany's greatest twentieth-century architects. His works - which enjoy recognition worldwide - are characterized by transparency, truth to materials, high artistic standards, and stringent design quality down to the smallest detail. His pavilions for the Federal Republic at the 1958 Brussels World's Fair established his international reputation while making him an architectural ambassador of the young German democracy." "Using predominantly original photographs, the present publication offers a portrait of Eiermann's architecture, while distinguished authorities on his work explore his philosophy and personality in a series of essays."--Jacket

Sensing the future : Moholy-Nagy, media and the arts by Oliver A. I Botar( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Life in the digital economy of information and images enriches us but often inducesa sense of being overwhelmed. 'Sensing the Future: Moholy-Nagy, Media and the Arts' considers the impact of technology by exploring ways it was addressed in the practice of the Hungarian polymath artist László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946), a prominent professor at the Bauhaus and a key figure in the history of Modernism. Moholy-Nagy felt that people needed guidance to cope with the onslaught of sensory input in an increasingly technologized, mediatized, hyper-stimulating environment. His ideas informed media theorists such as Walter Benjamin, John Cage, Sigfried Giedion, and Marshall McLuhan, who anticipated digital culture as it emerged. Should we then regard Moholy-Nagy as a pioneer of the digital? His aesthetic engagement with the technology/body problematic broached the notions of immersion, interactivity and bodily participation, innately offering a critique of today’s disembodiment.Was he then both a pioneer and a protocritic of the digital? This book is intended to introduce this seminal figure of post-medial practices to younger generations and,by including responses to his work by contemporary artists, to reflect on the ways in which his work is relevant to artistic practice now
