207 pp., 221 b&w illustrations, translation by Daphne Hoffman. Originally published in Germany, 1928, as Bauhausbuch 14. Includes index.

The Bauhaus master expands upon the 1928 “Bauhausbuch 14”, one of his numerous contributions to the preliminary curriculum at the Bauhaus in Dessau, re-titling it “The New Vision”. This first English language edition carries a new foreword by Moholy-Nagy who had immigrated to the US in 1933 to take up directorship of American Bauhaus School in Chicago, later the Institute of Design. This seminal work on Bauhaus design and the nature of modern art was written by one of the movement's most passionate teachers (co-edited by Walter Gropius, one of its founders) to “inform laymen and artists about the basic elements of the Bauhaus education.” Moholy-Nagy lays out his approach to design education, based upon "the merging of theory and practice", as it had been developed and taught at the Bauhaus in Germany thus making it accessible to the students in Chicago and a general readership. In 1947 “The New Vision” would be published yet again, coupled with his biographic essay "Abstract of an Artist" as the third volume of Robert Motherwell’s fourteen volume series: "Documents of Modern Art" and the posthumously completed publication of his “Vision in Motion”.

References to and work of many of the author's colleagues, collaborators (as well as much of his own) - are presented in this essential text on design: Joseph Albers, Alexander Archipenko, Hans Arp, Herbert Bayer, Adolf Behne, Le Corbusier, Theo van Doesburg, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Naum Gabo, Juan Gris, Walter Gropius, Wassily Kandinsky, Fernand Leger, El Lissitzky, Kasimir Malewitch[Malevitch], Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Rodchenko, Oscar Schlemmer, Kurt Schwitters, et al.    [Book ID # 1207]
