Bauhaus: The German art movement that shaped the modern world



Society moved by Art
Over the years, there have been hundreds of art and design movements of varying size and influence, some centred on the style or approach of a specific collective of artists in a certain location, others encompassing several creative fields and much more organic in terms of interpretation.

Many of these events, whether they occurred 150 years ago or 30 years ago, continue to have an impact today; you may have even felt their influence without realising it. These items frequently change in cycles, especially with the current fad for retro looks. So, a little art history knowledge can go a long way, and Bauhaus is an art movement you cannot ignore.

What is Bauhaus
Bauhaus—literally "building house"—began in the early twentieth century as a German art school. Founded by Walter Gropius, the school evolved into its own modern art movement, distinguished by its own approach to architecture and design. Today, Bauhaus is recognized for both its distinct style, which inventively integrates the fine arts with arts and crafts, and its long-lasting effect on modern and contemporary art.
If you want to create a presentation about this art movement then check out this free Bauhaus PowerPoint. It has a collection of slides designed with the shapes and colors of Bauhaus.

Today, Bauhaus is widely regarded as a catalyst for modern architecture and furniture, as well as a significant impact on mid-century painting and sculpture. Some buildings, such the UNESCO World Heritage Site Bauhaus Dessau, have been converted into tourist destinations and house museums, while many major contemporary art museums incorporate works of art into their permanent collections and popular exhibitions.

Several avant-garde art forms helped shape modern art during the twentieth century. While many of these genres, such as subconscious surrealism and dynamic abstract expressionism, favoured paintings, the Bauhaus movement included a diverse range of mediums, materials, and disciplines.

Origins of Bauhaus
Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, Bauhaus art dominated numerous avenues of experimental European art, from paintings and graphics to architecture and interiors. Though it is most strongly linked with Germany, it drew and inspired artists from all over the world. Its impact may now be found in art and design all throughout the world, whether inside a museum or on a suburban street.

The Bauhaus style
The Bauhaus style is usually described as a hybrid of the Arts and Crafts movement and modernism, as seen by its emphasis on function and, according to the Tate, its "goal to bring art back into contact with everyday life." Thus, typical Bauhaus designs contain limited decoration and a concentration on balanced proportions and abstract shapes, whether seen in painting, architecture, or interior design.

How Bauhaus impacted the modern world
The Bauhaus' legacy cannot be overstated. The German school's style and attitude continue to impact artists, designers, and architects today. This video examines the movement's impact 100 years after its inception:

Due to Nazi tyranny, many Bauhaus artists and professors were forced to depart Germany. However, their approaches and education spread like wildfire throughout the twentieth century. Walter Gropius went on to teach at Harvard, while Anni Albers relocated to North Carolina to teach at Black Mountain College and had work displayed at the Museum of Modern Art.

Even though the school was closed in 1933, its principles are spread over the world, and the Bauhaus aesthetic continues to this day, mixing art and utility in everything from architecture to graphics.

What came after Bauhaus
The Bauhaus was an important part of modernism, however what came after it? Postmodernism, a term as ambiguous and intriguing as its predecessor. Many art forms are classified as postmodern. Pop Art, Conceptual Art, Neo-Expressionism, and Feminist Art are examples of these. You can also check out Pop art PowerPoint templates.
