DESK IN EXILE / Bauhaus Paperback 20 by Bauhaus Lab 2016, Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau

「BAUHAUS PAPERBACK」シリーズ第20作。重たい桜材の机に亡命と移住のストーリーを語ることはできるのか。ヴァイマールで1923年に開催されたバウハウス展覧会の一部としてデザインされたウォルター・グロピウス(Walter Gropius)の机は、後にデッサウに運ばれ現代的なオフィスの一部として使われた。1938年以降は、マサチューセッツ州リンカーンにあるグロピウス邸の子供部屋に置かれた。本書はその机の目を通じ、現代の移住と定住を取り巻き変わり続ける状況を写し出した。

How can a heavy cherrywood desk tell a story of exile and migration? Designed as part of the 1923 Bauhaus exhibition in Weimar, then moved to Dessau where it was integrated into a modern office culture, Walter Gropius’s desk has been in Lincoln, Massachusetts, since 1938, in the children’s room of the family’s private residence. Looking through the lens of the object, the publication reflects the changing conditions of migration and “settling” in the modern age.
