original bauhaus workbook

The preliminary course was one of the most influential innovations in Bauhaus pedagogy. Material studies or paper folding are still part of art education today. The original bauhaus workbook assembles 50 exercises from the courses of Johannes Itten, László Moholy-Nagy and Josef Albers, whose goal was to develop the individual abilities of each student. From breathing stenograms to material studies to tactile panels - the editors have reconstructed the exercises from student works, gathered predominantly from the rich collection of the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung Berlin. With memories and comments from Bauhäuslers as well as scholars and experts in the respective fields.

Available at the bauhaus-shop at the temporary bauhaus-archiv, at the Berlinische Galerie and online
