Curated by Bernard Jazzar, A Total Work of Art: Bauhaus-Bayer-Aspen presents an overview of the Bauhaus, highlighting Herbert Bayer’s contribution as a student and later as a teacher from 1921-1928. It explores the school’s impact on Bayer’s development as a “total artist” working in multiple fields, which were all ultimately enlisted in the design of the Aspen Institute’s campus. Jazzar concludes the exhibition with an homage to the campus, arguably Bayer’s greatest legacy as a true manifestation of the Bauhaus mission: uniting all artistic disciplines to create a total work of art.
