Orig. typographic paper wrpps., some tanning, slightly rubbed especially along spine, possibly restored. Moscow (Gosudarstvennoe Techniko-Teoret) 1931. Hannes Meyer, the second director of the Bauhaus organized two exhibitions in Moscow, in 1930 and 1931, after emigrating to the Soviet Union in 1930. The first was held at the Architecture Academy and was a minor, almost-impromptu affair. The second was held at Moscow's State Musuem of New Western Art and took the form of a retrospective of more than 140 drawings, prints, and photographs along with around 40 objects, including textile samples. It was called "Bauhaus Dessau Währent der Leitung Unter Hannes Meyer 1928-1930", or "The Dessau Bauhaus during the Directorship of Hannes Meyer 1928-1930". Compared with the impressive exhibition on behalf of the German Werkbund at the Grand Palais in Paris, these Moscow exhibitions were humble and quite sparse. As of August 2017, we could find only four holdings worldwide and not a single holding in North America.
