REGINA BITTNER, KATHRIN RHOMBERG The Bauhaus in Calcutta An Encounter of the Cosmopolitan Avant-Garde

Rediscovered: the social parallels, cultural similarities, and shared visions of the modernist, postwar West and postcolonial India The Bauhaus exhibition in Calcutta in 1922 was a unique experience on the international art scene—a meeting of artistic and intellectual affinities. On a search for renewal after World War I, Western modernism encountered its Indian counterpart, which had emancipated itself from colonial constraints. At the Bauhaus’s first international show, works by Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger, Johannes Itten, and other Bauhaus artists were presented alongside those of modern Indian artists such as Nandalal Bose, Sunayani Devi, and Abanindranath and Gaganendranath Tagore. This publication gives an account how this unusual encounter came about and presents the exhibition as an exemplary case of art history that dealt with shared visions rather than transmissions from the West to the East.
