Exhibition BAUHAUS, 100 years and… at Elsa Vanier Gallery in Paris. 2019 marks the celebration of a significant anniversary: Bauhaus turns 100.
The Staatliches Bauhaus, commonly known as the Bauhaus, was a German Art school operational from 1919 to1933 that combined crafts and fine arts. It was famous for its approach to design that it publicized and taught. In 1919, while naming the school Bauhaus, Gropius proclaimed his goal as “to create a new guild of craftsmen, without the class distinctions which raise an arrogant barrier between craftsman and artist.”
The Bauhaus style was marked by the absence of ornamentation and by the harmony between the function of anobject or a building and its design.
This combination, artist-craftsman in a single hand and the quest for beauty without ornamentation, is probably whatbrings together the works of the duet Yoko Takirai / Pietro Pellitteri,(It), Josef Koppmann, (GB), Daphne Krinos, (GB), Niessing, (All.) and Suzanne Otwell-Nègre, (Fr).
