In the 19th century, women in Germany, with few exceptions, had no access to art academies; they could only take private lessons. With the beginning of the Weimar Republic, women gained the right to vote and the freedom to teach. When Walter Gropius opened the State Bauhaus in Weimar in 1919, women were admitted to the art academy. It was not the case that Marianne Brandt or Margaretha Reichardt were far behind their male colleagues in terms of their popularity at the time - certainly not in terms of their popularity at the time. The surplus of men is surprising when you consider that there was parity among the students.
It is up to us to continue to make women and their role at the Bauhaus visible. Below we present their products at the FORMOST store.
