WITH PAUL KLEE, MIES VAN DER ROHE AND ANNI ALBERS AUF BAUHAUS-TOUR The people at the Bauhaus were open-minded and eager to experiment, but they also made many enemies with it: This book explains to you why that was so. After the closure of the school in Berlin in 1933, some Bauhäusler moved from Europe to other continents. Where did Paul Klee, Mies van der Rohe, Anni Albers, Marcel Breuer, Fiedl Dicker and Arieh Sharon go? Why did their designs of chic Bauhaus lamps, practical pieces of furniture or angular houses also find much approval in other countries? Did you know that Hannes Meyer, Marianne Brandt and Lilly Reich also worked for projects in Moscow, Beijing and Chicago after the end of the Bauhaus? And that Paul Klee was one of the first to set out to gather inspiration outside Germany?
