Alan Powers excellent re-evaluation of the Bauhaus’s relationship with modern art and design in Britain and the USA has re-appeared in this handsome paperback format.
Bauhaus Goes West is a story of cultural exchange between Bauhaus émigrés in the years following the school's closure and the countries to which they moved, focusing in particular on Britain and America.
Taking as its starting point the cultural connections between the UK and Germany in the early part of the 20th century, and concluding with the Bauhaus's American legacy, architectural historian Alan Powers offers a timely and engaging re-evaluation of the school's values and influence, as well the work of Walter Gropius, László Moholy-Nagy, Josef and Anni Albers and others, to ask fresh and revealing questions about just what the Bauhaus means to us today.
