Update! invites a range of essayists to reflect on the continued relevance of the Bauhaus 90 years after its founding in 1919. Despite its brief existence and revolving directorship, the Bauhaus remains one of the preeminent teaching models for the promotion of avant-garde art, in its uniting of artists, architects and designers in an extraordinary conversation on the role of art in modern life. The site of experiments in the visual arts--ranging from architecture, industrial design, graphic design and furniture production to photography, textiles, ceramics, theater design, painting and sculpture--the legacy of the Bauhaus has profoundly shaped our understanding of the world today. Here, Gerd de Bruyn, Jeannine Fiedler, Sokratis Georgiadis, Kai-Uwe Hemken, Hans Dieter Huber, Nils Emde/niko.31, Philip Ursprung, Karin Wilhelm and Annett Zinsmeister provide a variety of takes on its aesthetic and pedagogical legacy.
