The Bauhaus Dessau Foundation is a centre for experimental design, research and teaching. The key concept in all areas of the Foundation’s work is the discourse of Modernism. It forms the bridge between the historical Bauhaus and the Bauhaus as it is today.
The Edition Bauhaus reflects the activities of the foundation and acts as its voice. It illustrates the breadth and depth of the research that is carried out and documents the outcome of the many different projects. The publications in the series cover the work of the international Bauhaus Kolleg and the ‘IBA Stadtumbau Sachsen-Anhalt 2010 (International Building Exhibition Stadtumbau Sachsen-Anhalt 2010) as well as the Bauhaus collection, the Bauhaus stage projects and the preservation of monuments.
The subjects dealt with in the Edition Bauhaus are as varied as the undertakings of the Foundation itself. The main focus is on architecture, creative production, design, the historical Bauhaus, urban issues, artistic projects and the relevant theoretical discourses – the overarching objective being to provide a critical reflection of Modernism.
