Martin Filler has written an excellent article, deeply researched, subtly and clearly written, detailed in its reflections and its presentation, entitled “The Powerhouse of the New” in The New York Review of Books (online) which looks at the Bauhaus from its inception and includes analyses of a great number of the variables, be they interpersonal, political, artistic, architectural, or creative, to name a few, that continue to intrigue and inspire us today. Necessary reading, quite simply. Includes a wonderful bibliography as well.
