"From Brussels to the Bauhaus: The Origins and Impact of Henry van de Velde's Work and Writings" (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: "From Brussels to the Bauhaus: The Origins and Impact of Henry van de Velde's Work and Writings"
Author: Katherine Kuenzli
Abstract: In 2019, the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus’s founding in Weimar Germany is being celebrated around the world, but the school’s origins in the work and writings of Walter Gropius’s predecessor in Weimar, Henry van de Velde, are rarely mentioned. This talk explores the oeuvre of this influential Belgian artist, whose work as a painter, designer, architect, and theorist in Belgium, France, Germany, and the Netherlands helped shape the origins of abstraction as an international language that originated in painting but encompassed all the visual media. This presentation consisted of a talk and a circulated text, which represented the first draft of my general introduction for Henry van de Velde: Selected Essays.

Henry van de Velde: Designing Modernism (Book)
Title: Henry van de Velde: Designing Modernism
Author: Katherine Kuenzli
Abstract: Painter, designer, and architect Henry van de Velde (1863–1957) played a crucial role in expanding modernist aesthetics beyond Paris and beyond painting. Opposing growing nationalism around 1900, he sought to make painting the basis of an aesthetic that transcended boundaries between the arts and between nations through his work in Belgium, France, Germany, and the Netherlands. Van de Velde’s designs for homes, museums, and theaters received international recognition. The artist, often associated with the Art Nouveau and Jugendstil, developed a style of abstraction that he taught in his School of Applied Arts in Weimar, the immediate precursor of and model for the Bauhaus. As a leading member of the German Werkbund, he helped shaped the fields of modern architecture and design. This long-awaited book, the first major work on van de Velde in English, firmly positions him as one of the twentieth century’s most influential artists and an essential voice within the modern movement.
