“It’s striking! You have to hear us – you’ll be thinking of us.”
From the rhythmical noise of the Bauhaus band to the inspiring art of the fugue, to the performances of contemporary composers: Life at the Bauhaus was always accompanied by background music, though it was not even on the curriculum.
Feininger was one of the first masters recruited to the Bauhaus by Gropius in 1919. His woodcut “Cathedral” adorned the cover of the Bauhaus Manifesto.
The graphic printshop at the State Bauhaus in Weimar produced major portfolios of graphic works by Bauhaus masters. The portfolios were bound in the bookbinding workshop.

Feininger practically grew up at the Bauhaus. With his camera he tirelessly recorded the vibrant life in the community and was later much in demand as a photojournalist for the prestigious photo agency DEPHOT.
