Bauhaus had no less a goal than to combine art and life when it was founded in 1919. This utopia was to be implemented in reality in concrete terms. Art and design were central to this view of the world and played a transformative role. From the very beginning it was a revolutionary enterprise that wished to be generally valid for society on the whole. The Bauhaus involved the transgression of boundaries between the disciplines and genres as well as those between the crafts and industry and nationality. The Bauhaus was a cosmopolitan project with its students and teachers coming from many nations, among them Swiss artist Johannes Itten and Bernese artist Paul Klee. Bauhaus ideas spread throughout the world, transforming the latter after the war.
