Vasily Kandinsky – Teaching at the Bauhaus


Until September 8, 2014

Exhibition, Bauhaus Archiv, Berlin, Germany, until 08 September.
Vasily Kandinsky was one of the most important teachers at the Bauhaus, but the courses he gave have so far only been documented in part. On the basis of a research project carried out by the Société Kandknsky, the exhibition presents documents and materials from international archives and collections that provide a comprehensive view of Kandinsky’s teaching work at the Bauhaus. The materials mainly consist of notes he made when preparing the classes, as well as illustrations from the fields of nature, technology, architecture, and painting that he selected from newspapers and books. In addition to lecture notes and exercises done by his students, his own drawings and watercolours are also shown.
