The Arts and Crafts School of Leipzig
"The Arts and Crafts School of Leipzig"
Have you ever heard of it?
and I feel stupid for not knowing about it,
but how would I?
There isn't any info out there on it.
(in English anyway)
It's like it didn't exist
(at least to an American design student).
you can fill a truck with books on the Bauhaus,
let alone info on the web, exhibitions, and on and on.
But this work stands up to the Bauhaus's production easily,
it's just more...
for lack of better term.
Some people think "craft" is a bad word,
and to those people I say
go fuck off.
(You hear me M.A.D. Museum people?)
It was bad enough you destroyed,
(maybe raped and skinned is a better analogy)
that fucking amazing building,
but changing the name from
The American Craft Museum
The Museum of Art and Design
was almost as bad if not worse....
Ok I'll stop now.
Enjoy the fruits of
The Arts and Crafts School of Leipzig,
they are quite tasty!
