The Bauhaus strives to unite all creative activity within a single whole, to reunify all the practical artistic disciplines as the inseparable components of a new architecture. The ultimate, if distant aim of the Bauhaus, is the unified, total work of art.
Walter Gropius, Manifesto and Programme of the Bauhaus, Weimar, April 1919
