This catalogue is published in conjunction with the exhibition The Whole World a Bauhaus, presented for example at ZKM in Karlsruhe and Pawilonie Wystawowym SARP in Warsaw. It uses a quotation from Fritz Kuhr (1899–1975) — a Bauhaus student who went on to become a university professor — as an opportunity not only to reflect on the Bauhaus as a school in Weimar, Dessau, and Berlin, but also to focus on contemporaneous modernist movements in regions beyond Europe.

The essays included here examine the Bauhaus’s multifaceted forms of expression, which go far beyond the constructivist language of the 1920s. Case studies from various cities—including Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Santiago de Chile, Moscow, Casablanca, and cities in the USA—show that the Bauhaus was not exclusively a German enterprise. Avant-garde artists in many parts of the world viewed the Bauhaus from their distinct perspectives and integrated it into their work.
As a result, the Bauhaus became a worldwide engine for new social, cultural, and political development, and was itself transformed by the diversity it encountered.
