There was one individual genius after another at the Bauhaus which made it an instant breeding ground for creativity. Perhaps, as importantly, each of these geniuses had a penchant towards discord in personal relationships. Thus, the Bauhaus quickly became used to constant discord in its ranks.
This provocation may have added fuel to the fire though, enhanced the creative flow rather than stifling it. Putting a conclave of artists together was never going to be a harmonious enterprise. Most have distinct anti social tendencies, which is necessary in order to get their work done.
The Bauhaus was founded in 1919 in Weimar, Germany by architect Walter Gropius.
Gropius’s Proclamation of the Bauhaus (1919) stated: reimagine the material world to reflect the unity of all the arts.
Bauhaus combined fine arts and design education.
The curriculum began with a course in the study of materials, color theory, and formal relationships. It was taught by Paul Klee, Vasily Kandinsky, and/or Josef Albers.
After learning theory, students entered specialized workshops, which included metalworking, cabinetmaking, weaving, pottery, typography, and wall painting.
In 1923, Gropius stressed the importance of designing for mass production. The school’s slogan became “Art into Industry.”
In 1925, the Bauhaus moved from Weimar to Dessau. Gropius designed a new state-of-the-art building to house the school.
