The catalogue Staatliches Bauhaus in Weimar 1919–1923 was published in 1923 to accompany this first public showcase. This catalogue of its transdisciplinary oeuvre put the Bauhaus idea on paper for the first time and gave an idea of its potential. Featuring numerous projects, it also describes the theoretical doctrines of Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, and Gertrud Grunow, thus conveying the teaching methods applied in the various workshops. Gropius’s preface explains the structure of the state-run Bauhaus and introduces its unique reform program, which called for and taught the unity of technology and art. Illustrations from the various workshops show projects by students whose connection with the Bauhaus is still largely unexplored today.

The commentary accompanying this facsimile edition places this momentous publication, rare and long out of print, in a historical context, documenting the Bauhaus from the initial idea to the standing it would attain as a preeminent school of art and design.
