520    In this highly original book. Hungarian art historian Eva 
       Forgacs examines the development of the Bauhaus school of 
       architecture and applied design by focusing on the idea of
       the Bauhaus, rather than on its artefacts. What gave this 
       idea its extraordinary powers of survival? Founded in 1919,
       with the architect Walter Gropius as its first director, 
       the Bauhaus carried within it the seeds of conflict from 
       the start. The duration of the Bauhaus coincides very 
       nearly with that of the Weimar Republic; the Bauhaus idea 
       - the notion that the artist should be involved in the 
       technological innovations of mechanization and mass 
       production - is a concept that was bound to arouse the 
       most passionate feelings. It is these two strands - 
       personal and political - that Forgacs so cleverly 
       interweaves. 
520 8  The text has been extensively revised since its original 
       publication in Hungarian, and an entirely new chapter has 
       been added on the Bauhaus's Russian analogue, VkhUTEMAS, 
       the Moscow academy of industrial art.
