Bauhaus Anonymous


The German Bauhaus, in its Weimar, Dessau and Berlin periods, was certainly the most important art and design school of the interwar era. Photography has been an important means of creation since the beginning of Bauhaus, like no other medium, it encapsulated its Zeitgeist. An instrument of documentation of student’s work as well as of the famous Dessau buildings and student’s everyday life, photography was first and foremost a modern form of creation for masters and students. Experimental portraits, reflections, close-ups, photo-montages, negative-prints etc. allow a discussion and understanding of those important years between the wars.
