A century after its founding, this book examines The Bauhaus as more than a highly influential art, architecture and design school. In myriad ways, emerging ideas about the body in relation to health, movement, gender and sexuality were at the heart of art and life at the school. Bauhaus Bodies reassesses the work of both well-known members and those who have unjustifiably escaped scholarly scrutiny, its women in particular. In 14 essays by established experts and emerging scholars, this timely volume reveals how Bauhaus artists challenged traditional ideas about bodies and gender.
