Claudia Perren (Ed.)
The Bauhaus Foundation’s annual magazine continues to merge its rich history with contemporary themes. The latest issue, Bauhaus 8: Movement, is about social upheaval, change and speed, migration and mobility and their shaping forces: art and dynamics, architecture and performance, high-altitude flights and movement devices. Highlights from the archive include Moholy-Nagy’s Vision in Motion, Paul Klee on overcoming gravity, Gropius’s writing desk in exile and Karla Grosch’s program of physical education at the Bauhaus. Divided into three chapters—”New Beginnings & Changes,” “Formative Forces” and “Transit and Transfer”—Issue 8 intertwines essays, interviews and portraits with contributions from designers, artists, acrobats, choreographers, curators, and photographers to create a garden rich with challenging and progressive ideas. Interviews by Sasha Waltz, Angelika Fitz, Bernd Scherer and Paul Nolte and contributions from Charlie Koolhaas, Beat Wyss, Claudia Perren, Ross Anderson, Florian Heilmeyer, Torsten Blume, Regina Bittner and many more.
