Between its three successive locations in weimar, the school fostered charistmatic and creative exchange between teachers and students, Dessau and Berlin, all varied in their artistic styles and preferences, but united in their idealism and their interest in a “total” work of art across different practices and media.

With utopian ideals for the future, sculpture, theatre, design, and technology to be applied across painting, architecture, ceramics, craftsmanship, the school developed a pioneering fusion of fine art, film, textiles, photography, and installation.
