Shaping Everyday Life! Bauhaus Modernism in de GDR
|Author||Florentine Nadolni, e.a.|
To celebrate 2019, the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, the Documentation Centre of Everyday Culture in Eisenhüttenstadt assembled an exhibition on Bauhaus heritage in the GDR (East Germany). Aiming to address continuities while also revealing contradictions and gaps in the development of modern design and everyday culture in the GDR, the exhibition refers to the reformist tradition of a school that was based on interdisciplinary methods and broad social design perspective. Through a wealth of image material, this catalogue presents a five-chapter overview of the exhibition’s thematic range, with objects including furniture, receptacles, technical devices, and commercial art.
