Summary
"Before the Bauhaus reevaluates the political, architectural, and artistic cultures of pre-World War I Germany. Every bit as contradictory and conflict-ridden as the German Second Reich itself, the world of architects, craftsmen, and applied-arts "artists" was in no way immune to the expansionist, imperialist, and capitalist struggles that transformed Germany in the quarter-century leading up to the First World War. In this study, John V. Maciuika brings together architectural and design history, political history, social history, and cultural geography. He substantially revises our understanding of the roots of the Bauhaus and, by extension, the historical roots of twentieth-century German architecture and design. At the same time, his book also sheds new light on hotly contested debates pertaining to the history of pre - World War I Germany, namely, questions involving the "modernity" or "anti-modernity" of the German Second Empire, the character and effectiveness of the government administration, and the role played by the nation's most important architects, members of the rising bourgeois class, in challenging the traditional aristocracy at the top of the new German economic and social order."--Jacket
