The sculptor Gerhard Marcks (1889–1981) was not only one of the first instructors at the newly founded Bauhaus, but also one of the few artists who advocated the original idea of renewing the arts through handicrafts. Starting in 1919, a group of likeminded comrades-in-arms established itself at the Bauhaus. Its purpose was to convey the artistic concepts of the Bauhaus to schools, communities and circles of friends far beyond the borders of Europe. This exhibition is the first ever to examine this extraordinary group of artists and to offer a new and surprising look at the Bauhaus outside of industry and classification.
