Bauhaus Dessau a k t i v
An exercise book
The design exercises convey the Bauhaus in its various facets, its history and its topicality. They are designed for all target audiences in terms of age and previous knowledge of design. Their playful, experimental character is intended to encourage people to approach the Bauhaus at their own pace, in their own context and with their own interests, and to become active in design.
The 42 exercises are divided into five categories, but can be combined with each other as desired. They were created as part of the Bauhaus Agents programme and were collected for the publication Bauhaus aktiv.
Published by the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation.
