The Bauhaus and Czechoslovakia 1919-1938

The Bauhaus and Czechoslovakia 1919-1938

By Markéta Svobodová

A beautiful new publication featuring rarely seen photographs and documents, The Bauhaus and Czechoslovakia 1919–1938 looks at the Central European context and legacy of Germany’s legendary Bauhaus school. This important center of avant-garde learning, whose teachers included artists such as Walter Gropius, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Josef Albers, László Moholy-Nagy and Adolf Meyer, was a place of meeting and mutual inspiration for artists, designers and architects. Czech students brought their own original ideas and progressive techniques into this heady atmosphere. This volume, the result of many years of intense scholarly research by Czech art historian Markéta Svobodová, is the first publication to survey the contributions of Czech students in this creative environment, offering a fascinating student-centered perspective on the famed institution.
