Fabian Knecht changes patterns of perception and action, transgresses art concepts and power structures, and questions social relations and norms by countering them with strong and provocative images.

Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau: The Collections

The Bauhaus was one of the most important schools of art, design, and architecture, whose visionary designs continue to be regarded as icons of modernity today. This book provides an in-depth presentation of the second-largest Bauhaus collection in the world.

Objects and materials found in the Bauhaus buildings in Dessau—the Bauhaus Building, the Masters’ Houses, the Employment Office, and the Dessau-Törten estate—are presented as well. The book also provides an introduction to the history and development of the school.
