In the Bauhaus Manifesto of 1919, Walter Gropius announced the school’s decision to admit “any person of good repute, without regard to age or sex.” Though often celebrated for its progressive art education and the inclusion of women alongside men, the Bauhaus also perpetuated the idea that women were best suited for so-called feminine techniques such as textiles, ceramics, and design. Rarely acknowledged as major figures in art history, the women of the Bauhaus underscored the art school’s emphasis on connecting art and craft and bridging high and low. Examine key female figures of the Bauhaus between 1919 and 1933 and consider questions about the role of gender in modern art and its legacy today.
