Bauhaus: Workshops for Modernity

Of the many schools of avant-garde art that blossomed in Europe in the early 20th century, the Bauhaus was perhaps the most impactful. Founded by the architect Walter Gropius in 1919, only months after the end of the devastating first World War, the ideas developed at the school continue to influence the thinking of artists and critics to this day. On this site from the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), readers may like to begin with the Timeline, which overviews the history of the institution from its founding in the city of Weimar to its move to Dessau and its subsequent relocation to Berlin. Next, Life at the Bauhaus tells the story of this tight-knit community through photographs and written descriptions, while Behind the Scenes features video clips of exhibit curators and staff discussing the ins and outs of the project. The Kandinsky Questionnaire also shouldn't be missed as it takes readers into the mind of the famous Russian painter who taught at the Bauhaus from 1922 to 1933.
