The Death and Life of the Total Work of Art: Henry Van De Velde and the Legacy of a Modern Concept

    This book is a compendium of the essays presented during the 12th International Bauhaus Colloquium 2013. On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Henry van de Velde's birthday, the contributions of the colloquium highlighted the historic meaning of the Gesamtkunstwerk and its significance in more recent discussions. On this basis the publication is conceived as a new interdisciplinary approach to an important aspect of the Bauhaus as well as to a key element of modern architecture and architectural theory in general.
