Product Description

Details

In 1921, architect Walter Gropius founded a theater workshop at the Bauhaus. It conducted new research and experiments on the relationship between humans and technology. The workshop s central protagonists Lothar Schreyer, Oskar Schlemmer and László Moholoy-Nagy investigated issues of mechanization, machine industrialization and rationalization. They sought a new, meaningful relationship with the dynamized, increasingly technically animated environment. In their stage laboratory, they developed abstract motion studies, designed atmosphere machines and built actual theater apparatuses. They also organized the famous Bauhaus celebrations, where they staged themselves as a collective of new humans. For the first time, a catalog from the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation showcase sketches, drawings and photographs as well as films, figurines, costumes, models and apparatus devoted to the experiments and concepts of the legendary Bauhaus stage!

Softcover, 256 pages.
