Bauhaus women 11 Dec  2009
Bauhaus women
The forgotten women produced by the 20th Century’s most influential school of design

When the Bauhaus art school opened in Germany in 1919 more women applied than men so why have we never heard of them? Names such as Paul Klee and Walter Kandinsky are familiar but what of Marianne Brandt or Annie Albers? Now a new book ‘Bauhaus Women’ from author Ulrike Mueller reveals the little known but significant contribution by female artists to the most influential design movement of the last century. Architectural critic, Jonathan Glancey and Professor of Design History, Penny Sparke combine to assess the Bauhaus women.

Bauhaus Women, written by Ulrike Mueller, published by Flammarion, ISBN-13: 978-2-08-030120-8
