Zeitschrift bauhaus zum Thema "Dinge"

Die dritte Ausgabe der Zeitschrift bauhaus, die von der Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau herausgegeben wird, ist erschienen. Passend zur großen Marcel-Breuer-Retrospektive, die noch bis Ende Oktober am Bauhaus Dessau zu sehen ist, widmet sich das Heft den Dingen. „Ein Ding ist bestimmt durch sein Wesen“, schrieb der Bauhausgründer Walter Gropius 1925. „Um es so zu gestalten, dass es richtig funktioniert – ein Gefäß, ein Stuhl, ein Haus –, muss sein Wesen zuerst erforscht werden; denn es soll seinem Zweck vollendet dienen, das heißt, seine Funktion praktisch erfüllen, haltbar, billig und ‚schön‘ sein.“
