Bauhaus-Archiv Museum für Gestaltung: Special Exhibitions - Gertrud Arndt

Originally, Gertrud Arndt (1903-2000) had wanted to become an  architect, but a regular course in architecture was not yet being  offered at the Bauhaus. The master of form in the weaving workshop,  Georg Muche, recognized her special talent in the field of textiles and  entrusted her with creating a carpet to her own design as an  introduction to it. Gertrud Arndt quickly became a specialist; her  best-known work was a carpet produced for Walter Gropius’s office. On  completing her apprenticeship examination, she entirely turned to  photography. Starting in 1929, she took photographic self-portraits in a  series she called ‘Mask Portraits’dramatizing herself with only a few  accessories; the photographs are internationally well-known today.
