Bauhausmädels: A Tribute to Pioneering Women Artists

By Patrick Rössler 

“The book reflects much―from the rise of photography as hobby, profession and art form to popular hairstyles (short) and poses. The women’s post-Bauhaus trajectories, many affected by the rise of the Nazis, form a dizzying tracery. Some remained artists, others did not. Either way, learning about them is a gift.”―The New York Times

Bauhausmädels illustrates that the Bauhaus was an experiment deeper, wider, and richer than many historians have suggested, and to forget its radical commitment to profound change is to misunderstand its essentiality.”―The Brooklyn Rail

“Arranged almost like a family photo album, the book captures the spirit of the school’s underrated members.”―

Meet trailblazers like Marianne Brandt, Gertrud Arndt, and Lucia Moholy in Bauhausmädels—or “Bauhaus girls”, a term that expressed admiration for the young women who bravely eluded traditional gender roles to build a different future. With never-before-seen portraits and biographies, this is a unique celebration of the Bauhaus centennial and a long-overdue tribute to the school’s women artists.
