neue baukunst!
modern architecture in images and books

Bauhaus Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung, Berlin

– 10 June 2014



He is considered to be one of the most important writers on contemporary architecture: Walter Müller-Wulckow, art collector, historian and publicist. In the 1920s, he reached the masses with his four “Blue Books” on New Architecture. The Bauhaus Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung in Berlin is now dedicating an exhibition to these works.


Müller-Wulckow’s photographic books on the latest developments in German architecture can be described as historic best sellers. He did not only capture the general spirit of the age of awakening and modernity but the Blue Books’ unusually high print run and affordable price also contributed to their wide circulation and popularity.

The exhibition shows original photographs of well-known Bauhaus architecture. Arthur Köster, Hugo Schmölz, Lucia Moholy and many other artists are represented with their photographs of Neue Baukunst. There are also sketches, plans and Müller-Wulckow’s   correspondence with pioneers such as Peter Behrens and Walter Gropius, conveying an impressive overall picture of the architectural avantgarde between 1900 and 1930. Lectures, film presentations and workshops will also be part of the exhibition.
