Art Style | Art & Culture International Magazine, an online, quarterly magazine devoted to art and culture, invites the submission of extended essays.

#issue_2  Bauhaus Special Edition

The deadline for the submission of essays to the Art Style Magazine’s Bauhaus Special Edition is May 6 (extended until May 12). This issue is scheduled for publication in early June 2019.

The essays in this issue will focus on the style of modern art, architecture, and design from the Bauhaus School in Germany (Weimar, Berlin, and Dessau), based on a brief centennial panorama of the school, which still exerts influence in new compositions worldwide. This avant-garde School of Arts is a reference for cultural production as well as industrial and technological development and their relationship with art, not only through the development of forms but also through aesthetic and cultural transformations. On the whole, this issue will highlight the importance of the functionality that emerged from the Bauhaus legacy, as well as the international influence of globalized production on architecture and design.

Considered in this special edition – among the most important influences of the Bauhaus centenary – are the architect Walter Gropius; the first teacher of the Bauhaus, Johannes Itten; and the visual artists Josef Albers, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky (including the abstraction of Klee and Kandinsky related to music), Lyonel Feininger, and Marcel Breuer as well as the textile artists Gunta Stölzl and Anni Albers, also Marianne Brandt, the painter and theater designer Oskar Schlemmer, and the photographer Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, all together in their variety of artistic activities. Additionally, included are Mies van der Rohe, the last director of Bauhaus in Berlin, and Hannes Meyer—for whom form must follow function so that the aim “Form follows Function” was intensified. Working together under the name of Bauhaus in a wing of the modernist era, these individuals were representatives of this German School of Arts. Although they are relevant throughout history, they remain an open issue in art, architecture, and design, addressing the following question: To what extent is Bauhaus even possible nowadays?

Potential topics for submissions are social-aesthetics, technology, new modes of representation, and innovative trends, which will be gratefully received. There is also the matter, of course, of political will toward well-intentioned decisions in agreements between national and international demand, which encompass not only the aspirations of the individual in society, but also demands for a standardized mass industry concerning eco-design or life-cycle design.

This proposal emphasizes creativity in its forms, contents, structures, planning, and diversity, beyond the possibilities that such creativity can result in innovation and its relation to the tradition. Finally, the objective is to discuss art, architecture, and design and its current cultural significance, showing the aesthetic function concerning social needs and dealing with the configuration (Gestaltung) by a balance of innovative thinking, techniques, materials, and conditions of production.
