From Material to Architecture: Bauhausbucher

Price: 70

Published in 1929, From Material to Architecture contains the main features of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy's teaching program at the Bauhaus. With its focus on the preliminary course, this last book of the 14-volume series explains how students "develop towards practice from day to day." The educational principle behind it, Jedermann ist begabt (everyone is talented), was central to teaching at the Bauhaus from 1919 to its conclusion in 1933. Moholy-Nagy's second contribution within the series (he also wrote Painting, Photography, Film, volume 8) searches "for the closest connection between art, science and technology by aiming for the training of finer sensory perception." AUTHOR: Laszlo Moholy-Nagy was offered a position at the Weimar Bauhaus in 1923, and soon belonged to the inner circle of Bauhaus masters. When the school moved to Dessau, Moholy-Nagy and Walter Gropius began a fruitful collaboration as joint publishers of the Bauhausbucher series. 209 illustrations
