Product Overview

The fifth issue of Stiftung Bauhaus Dessaus new periodical focuses on the role of the tropics as an ideal of modernism. Torsten Blume explores aspects of nudity in modernism, Zvi Efrat writes about Arieh Sharons 'tropical architecture' in Nigeria, Brenda Danilowitz proves the influence of pre-Colombian art on Anni Albers work with textiles, Carola Ebert and Stefan Locke offer a cultural history of the bungalow as a global architectural phenomenon, Regina Bittner describes the transcultural exchange between Indian and European modernism and Marion von Osten analyses the insidious propaganda used by the Nazis to discredit the Weienhof settlement in Stuttgart as an Arab village. Also includes articles on information design after Otto Neurath, Erich Borchert and his fate in Moscow and love affairs at the studio complex in Dessau.
