BAUHAUSBUCH 06

THEO VAN DOESBURG

NEUE GRUNDBEGRIFFE DER NEUEN GESTALTENDEN KUNST

1925

 

schriftleitung  walter gropius

l. moholy-nagy

A layman's breviary of elementary art. Praiseworthy as an experiment, not convincing as a result. Correct elimination of the means of expression from painting, sculpture, architecture. Correct interpretation of historical works of art from "Egypt" to "Picasso". Dangerous the presented transfigurations of a cow (Figs. 5-8) and a landscape (Figs. 16, 17) and the explanation of neo-plastic works of art as direct transformations of the optical impression of nature. The architectural designs depicted are composed sculptures; are they therefore "architecture"?
