Combining the arts and crafts movement with early Twentieth Century methods of industrialization against a backdrop of social turmoil and a new approach to arts education, Germany’s Staatliches Bauhaus transformed design and established the Modernist style that is still ever so popular nearly 100 years later. Founded by Walter Gropius with instructors including Wassily Kandinsky, Laszlo Maholy Nagy, and Joseph Albers (to name just a few), and later led by Mies van der Rohe; this course will explore a variety of topics from the origins of the International Style of Architecture, to the basics of colour theory as we know it today. Simultaneously, we will examine the closure of the Bauhaus by the Nazis and the migration of the school’s theories to America, including the establishment of Black Mountain College and the Harvard School of Design. An optional visit to the NCMA to view related paintings may also be added.
