Dishcloth Bauhaus Lara Luetke
'Day and night, light and darkness - this polarity is of fundamental significance in human life and nature generally. The apinter's strongest expressions of light and dark are the colors white and black ...' Johannes Itten, one of the greatest masters and explorers of colour writes in his famous 'The Art of Color: The Subjective Experience and Objective Rationale of Color' about such contrasts, on which he builds his theory about all other colours. Itten was immensely influential, particular as a teacher and theoretician of the BAUHAUS, and yet, he was more than that. As the Bauhaus overall, his interests was in teaching his students the practical art of exploring colours. In this sense, he also dealt not only with paintings and graphics, but also with day to day tools. These expressions of the daily life was the necessary transfer that the Bauhaus was looking for. Moreover, for Itten it was a combination between colour and form. Different geometric forms will have different results on how we perceive colours.
