Because everyone keeps reblogging my Bauhaus ladies post, here’s some selfies by Gertrud Arndt. She went to the Bauhaus school to study architecture but was told there was no architecture course and was forced to study weaving. She took self-portraits on the side, but people weren’t aware of her photography until the late 70’s when they were first exhibited.

What’s interesting about Ardnt’s work is that she is so often upheld as a “Woman of the Bauhaus” but her work I’m drawn to the most, her photography, is not really of the Bauhaus school at all. Bauhaus photography was, like its design components, focused on architectural and constructivist forms a la the shadowy photographs of Moholy-Nagy. But Ardnt’s photos were romantic and imperfect, with a lot of emphasis on the decadence of her layered clothes and their textures. You get the sense from these photos that she had a great personality. Her photos in the context of her academics would have no doubt been seen as frivolous. 

She would have loved Tumblr, probably.
