Bauhaus Construct : Fashioning Identity, Discourse and Modernism / Edited by Jeffrey Saletnik and Robin Schuldenfrei. — First published 2009 by Routledge. — London ; New York : Routledge, 2010. — IX, 278 p., ill. — ISBN 0-203- 86867-6
Reconsidering the status and meaning of Bauhaus objects in relation to the multiple re-tellings of the school's history, this volume positions art objects of the Bauhaus within the theoretical, artistic, historical, and cultural concerns in which they were produced and received. Collectively, its essays take into account the primacy of cultural objects in fashioning a critical history of the school.
Featuring contributions from leading scholars in the history of art, architecture, and design, this volume offers an entirely new treatment of the Bauhaus, introducing new archival research and innovative methodologies which reveal how histories of the school have been constructed. Its essays demonstrate how Bauhaus objects are central to the discourse on the school and its key figures, including Paul Klee, Walter Gropius, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and address the implications this has had on our understanding of the Bauhaus and modernism more generally.
Issues such as art and design pedagogy, the practice of photography, copyright law, and critical theory are brought into focus in relation to understandings of the iconic design school. At its core, the volume takes into account the inherent pliability of the Bauhaus and its continued relevance. An important resource for anyone studying the Bauhaus, modern art and design.
Jeffrey Saletnik is Lecturer and Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Art History and Archeology at Columbia University. Recently he was a fellow of the Berlin Program for Advanced German and European Studies at the Freie Universitat Berlin.
