...113 from 1924 and which sees the wall mounted concertina mechanism replaced with a desk mounted clamp and the adjustable lamp head attached to a long, positionable, bent tubular steel support, and an object which was key in the growth and establishment of the company; and also through discussions on parallel subjects including spring balanced lighting as perhaps most popularly exemplified by George Carwardine's Anglepoise, on Christian Dell, a not unimportant figure in the development of positionable lighting in the inter-War years, and also on Bauhaus: both Bauhaus's (hi)story with positionable lighting and Bauhaus's (hi)story with and to Midgard... The latter illustrated and discussed through, for example, photos of Midgard lamps in projects by Bauhäusler, including the ADGB Bundesschule in Bernau, one of the few external architecture projects realised at Bauhaus, or a letter from Walter Gropius to Curt Fischer in which Gropius organises promotional photos of Midgard lamps, and a discussion which for all helps contribute to the deconstruction of the primacy of Bauhaus in popular understandings of all things inter-War design, helps further underscore that Bauhaus wasn't alone in inter-War Germany, far less inter-war Thüringen...

...Looking back from the safety of 2019 it can be all too easy to assume that Bauhaus was a popularly received and much celebrated institution... Painter, Author, Animal Psychologist and Bauhaus Critic the Stadtmuseum Weimar introduce one of the institution's most tenacious and steadfast opponents; and in doing so allows not only for considerations on some of Bauhaus's lesser discussed (hi)story, but also for reflections on the political, social and cultural realities of 1920's Germany...

..."Das Bauhaus in Berlin-Steglitz 1932-1933" at the Siemens-Villa, MSB Medical School Berlin, Germany As this Bauhaus anniversary year approaches its end, it is only right and proper that thoughts turn to the end of Bauhaus, and those last months in Berlin: months which far from being about the reform of creative education, the connections between art, craft and industry or the direction of society as had been the case in Dessau and Weimar, were for all about survival in an increasingly hostile environment... A reminder that much as post-War East Germany did it's best to extinguish memory of the institution, in immediate post-War West Germany Bauhaus's star didn't shine quite as brightly as it does today...
...Or indeed the only connection to Bauhaus, MDW often being quoted as an example of a continuation of Bauhaus thinking, whereby its important to understand that Rudolf Horn is very much a designer of the Hannes Meyer Bauhaus: one, for example, can't imagine Rudolf Horn in an Itten's Vorkurse, paying much attention to Moholy-Nagy, and certainly there is, we feel, little point in buying Rudolf Horn tickets for Schlemmer's Triadisches Ballett for Christmas... In addition to the Bauhaus connection, the most regular connection made in context of the MDW system is IKEA, in East Germany it is colloquially known as DDR IKEA...
