Bauhaus Pictures at LUMAS
The simple and precise lines characteristic of the Bauhaus aesthetic can be found all over the world. At LUMAS, you will find pictures of the Bauhaus or in the style of the Bauhaus. See the flickering, geometric surfaces in Sabine Wild’s reinterpretation of the Master House in Dessau. Or enter Jens Hausmann’s Brazilian jungle, where clean architectural lines graze dense foliage. In Horst & Daniel Zielske’s pictures of the Bauhaus in Dessau, the aesthetic is on display in all its photogenic purity. Bauhaus lives.
About the Bauhaus
A hundred years ago, in times of rapidly increasing mass-production, architect Walter Gropius founded an art institution with the stated intention of creating “… a new guild of craftsmen, without the class distinctions which raise an arrogant barrier between craftsman and artist." This was given the humble name of Bauhaus, German for “building house.”
In line with its mission, the school’s focus was divided evenly between fine arts and applied arts. While these disciplines had previously been separated, they were brought together to create a new, overarching philosophy which – as a formal language – would work in harmony with industrial production processes. Adhering to Louis Sullivan’s famous maxim “Form follows function,” Bauhaus came to be associated with a stark aesthetic of clean lines.
The school’s staff of craftsmen, architects, sculptors, and painters – including Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky – revolutionized the way art was taught. The school and its philosophies had an enormous and lasting impact on all aspects of art. It is now viewed as one of the most important art education institutions of the 20th century, and has come to be a symbol of modernism in the fields of architecture and design. The Bauhaus moved from Weimar to Dessau in 1925 and relocated to Berlin in 1932. There it remained until dissolving under pressure from the Nazi regime in 1933.
