Artes, ofícios e política

Bauhaus left its mark on German cities as well, and not only after the war. The breathtaking absolutism of Hilberseimer’s proposals was not irreconcilable with National Socialism, and a good many Bauhaus pupils made their way into Nazi service. One of the surprises of the exhibition (to me at least) is that the familiar story that the Nazis closed the Bauhaus is not entirely true. As it happened, the Gestapo actually authorized its continuation, just so long as certain conditions were met (in particular, no more Kandinsky). In the end, it was economic hardship rather than outright prohibition that closed the Bauhaus.
