Bauhaus

Synopsis
The Bauhaus (1919-1933) is considered the most prestigious school of architecture, design and art. This film introduces five of the most important Bauhaus teachers, whose visions and art theories made the school an icon of reform, experimentation, and the avant-garde. Their works and teachings, derived from Bauhaus ideas, spread all over the world, and have greatly influenced the modernist style.

The five short documentaries look at; Josef Albers’ HOMAGE TO THE SQUARE: AGAINST THE DEEP BLUE, Lyonel Feininger BIRD CLOUD, Johannes Itten’s THE MEETING, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy’s LIS, and Oskar Schlemmer’s FIGURES WITH BALUSTRADES.
