Example text

Let us create a new guild of craftsmen, without the class distinctions which raise an arrogant barrier between craftsman and artist,” Gropius declared, setting the tone for this postwar manifest. In light of runaway inflation and newly minted poverty out of the ashes of Germany’s former bourgeoisie, a smoothing over of class differences seemed pertinent to this otherwise well-­to-­do cultural figure. ” Indeed, Gropius’s proclamation and manifesto seemingly harnessed a Marxist rhetoric and rejected the distinctions between craft and art because it befitted a landscape in which things and buildings had to be remade, and in which communities (or classes) were being redefined in the immediate aftermath of social upheaval—­a war, the loss of a regime, a new political system.

24 A proposal by Gropius’s student Walter Determann for a Bauhaus Development in 1920, like the weaving by Jungnik discussed earlier, encapsulates the challenges of this initial Bauhaus moment as it emerged out of the AfK (in the intersection of expressionism and architecture). If seen without the surrounding text, this Siedlung design might be mistaken for an abstract drawing by Itten—­one in which an oblong pentagon is divided internally into geometric shapes (diamonds, zigzags, and squares) using a modernist palette of mostly primary colors.

The problem of mere doing that Baumhoff brilliantly points out indeed subtended the gender of the weaving medium in the early years. Doing without thinking (without ends) seems to be the operational difference. The initial absence of “professional” affiliation combined with a lack of a theoretical armature made weaving a (feminine) distraction from “real” craft in this already unstable institution—­a workshop practice merely done. Expressionist Pedagogy Although the Vorkurs only became compulsory in 1921, Itten established the course’s principles and the primary methods by which he approached teaching immediately upon his arrival.
