The Bauhaus was an internationally famous school for art and design that existed in the 1920s in Germany. Artists like Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, and Josef Albers were among the faculty at the Bauhaus. The Bauhaus ideal focused on designing objects that embodied functionality and clean, spare aesthetics. Is the iPhone an example of this Bauhaus ideal? . Tonight on Inquiry, we talk with NICHOLAS FOX WEBER. He has been the executive director of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, and founder of Le Korsa, a nonprofit arts, education, and medical organization in Senegal. His new book is: iBAUHAUS: THE iPHONE AS THE EMBODIMENT OF BAUHAUS IDEALS AND DESIGN.
