The third issue of the magazine bauhaus is dedicated to things. »A thing is defined by its essence«, wrote the Bauhau‘s founder Walter Gropius in 1925. The current issue has committed itself to exploring the essence of objects. Parallel to our large retrospective of the designer of the century, Marcel Breuer, for this issue we have sought out objects that may at first sight appear banal, but which permit the analysis of utopia and amancipatory effect, of fetish and consumer behaviour—from teespoon to cactus, from price tag to mirror, from casing to timetable. This issue endeavours to discover how the Bauhaus has changed the way we deal with things and what the debate about the object per se has developed into today.
