Description - Bauhaus Culture by Kathleen James-Chakraborty
Offering the first comprehensive training in the visual arts grounded in abstraction, the Bauhaus was the site of a dazzling range of influential experiments in painting, architecture, photography, industrial design, and even artistic education itself. Three-quarters of a century later, the "look" of the new remains indebted to the Bauhaus and its equation of technology
with modernism. Central to discussions of the relationships between art, industrialization, and politics in the twentieth century, much of the school's later impact was derived in part from its status as one of the foremost cultural symbols of Germany's first democracy and its public reputation as a "cathedral of socialism."
