Design Rehearsals: Conversations about Bauhaus Lessons (Edition Bauhaus 57)
The student projects from the preliminary course at the Bauhaus Dessau School of Design are a unique document of the learning process. They are evidence of the independent and multifarious approaches applied to the work of “translating” the particular assignments set by the Bauhaus teachers. They not only counter the idea of the preliminary course that has now become canonized in historical accounts of the Bauhaus but also offer insights, in their variety and open-endedness, into the dual process of acquiring knowledge and making new discoveries.
