Bauhaus Dances / Oskar Schlemmer
Painter, sculptor, designer, and choreographer.
If today's arts love the machine, technology, and organization, if they aspire to precision and reject anything vague and dreamy, this implies an instinctive repudiation of chaos and a longing to find the form appropriate to our times.
