Description
Summary:The Bauhaus school has been understood through the writings of its founding director Walter Gropius and several artists who taught there. Far less recognised are texts written by women in the school's weaving workshop. It was here that a modernist theory of weaving emerged - an investigation of its material elements, loom practice, and functional applications. The women harnessed the vocabulary of other disciplines (painting, architecture, or photography) to take a profound step in the recognition of weaving as a medium-specific craft - one that could be compared to and differentiated from others.
