It is posible to recognize the influence of the Bauhaus, in contemporary artistic approaches or artists have alredy rejected them?
Let´s take de opportunity to submit our personal reflection of art, approaching the wide range of celebration events organized to tribute the school and doing a re-reading some claims.
Manifesto of the Staatliches Bauhaus
Architects, painters and sculptors must learn a new way of seeing and understanding the composite character of the building, both as a totality and in terms of its parts. Their work will then re-imbue itself with the spirit of architecture, which it lost in salon art.
The art schools of old were incapable of producing this unity—and how could they, for art may not be taught.
Architects, sculptors, painters—we all must return to craftsmanship! For there is no such thing as “art by profession”.
The Bauhaus was an art school in Germany from 1919 to 1933 that combined crafts and the fine arts. It is famous for a multi-disciplinary approach to art and design education. In the above manifesto, Gropius championed the school’s mission—architecture, sculpture and painting were to lead back to the crafts.
