Catalogue Note

With a large number of artistic magazines being published at the time, such as Sturm and De Stijl, it was no surprise that the Bauhaus soon followed lead. Walter Gropius was the editor while László Moholy-Nagy was in charge of content and design. Intended to counter the growing criticism against the Bauhaus and provide information about events and tuition, it also provided a platform to advertise for the products of the workshops. The quarterly magazine was first published in 1926 with the opening of the new building in Dessau. After 1928, Hannes Meyer and Ernst Kállai took over responsibility for content, although all masters and students contributed. Around this time, the magazine was given the subtitle zeitschrift für gestaltung. The content rapidly grew, including all forms of art, making it a key voice in the artistic and architecural avantgarde. The final issues were published by Mies van der Rohe together with Josef Albers, Wassily Kandinsky and Ludwig Hilberseimer in 1931.
