Tete-beche binding. Publisher's description: As its 2019 centenary approaches, we are reminded that the Bauhaus was not only a new school type but an entirely new approach to knowledge acquisition. To what extent is the Bauhaus tied to its place and history? Can it guide critical practice in today's globalized world? Inspire alternative educational models? Gathered in this dense and intelligent reader are discussions, stories and statements from an international group of over 50 Bauhaus experts, including original texts by Walter Gropius and Moholy-Nagy and texts by curators, historians, philosophers, artists and architects who met in 2014 to discuss the school's history and future relevance. Organized into three sections addressing Bauhaus location, history and character, the book highlights its open-ended curriculum, workshop-based combination of research and design, theory and practice, and its structural integration of artistic disciplines that make it a model for the future. And it's a good thing, too, as we face the imperative to sustain our exploding population in the next hundred years.
