Educated by teachers such as Paul Klee, Wassily Kandisky and Walter Gropius at the Bauhaus in Dessau, Germany—arguably the most influential school of art of the 20th century—Max Bill began his career in the 1930s in the manner of a universal genius. In the 1950s he teamed up with Inge Scholl and Otl Aicher to found the legendary Ulm College of Design in Ulm, Germany, becoming its first director. In his work, Max Bill continued the legacy of the Bauhaus both as an artist and a teacher and made a decisive and lasting contribution to shaping 20th-century cultural life.
This book of the exhibition held at the Museum MARTa Herford in Herford, Germany, displays his wide-ranging work and it also sets him in the context of his cultural milieu by featuring works by his contemporaries, such as Kurt Schwitters, Wassily Kandinsky, and Donald Judd.
