    Bauhaus Reklame
The 52 tasks of Joost Schmidt

  How did the Bauhaus in Dessau educate Visual Communication Design? The literature refers often to the 52 tasks of the Reklameklasse of Joost Schmidt. But what were these tasks?

It was not easy to find evidence but finally a document was found at the Bauhaus archive in Berlin.

This project documents the content and was supposed to be the beginning of a deaper research. As the project was considered to be irrelevant for Kunsthøgskolen i Bergen, the research did not continue. So it is a fragmentary document.

Result of a research about visual communication at the Bauhaus.
First presentation in Bergen in March 2004.

Free downloadable PDF of the powerpoint presentation in English.
