Johannes Rinkenburger


The 14 Bauhaus books were published between 1925 and 1930. Their authors discussed design principles, practices, and science of art approaches from various perspectives. Johannes Rinkenburger examined and researched the contents and key concepts of this avant-garde series of books along with their backgrounds and context, and deducts their useful application and importance to current design schools. Based on design experiments, new links and correlations are established and methods shown that reveal and apply the legacy of Bauhaus, one of the historically most important design schools worldwide, to contemporary design. In visual illustrations, which make up a large part of the publication, individual concepts and methods of the Bauhaus books are combined, contemplated on and implemented using today’s graphic design methods and techniques.
