T’ai Smith deftly reframes the Bauhaus weaving workshop as central to theoretical inquiry at the school, uncovering new significance in the work the weavers did as writers. Exploring questions of establishing value and legitimacy in the art world along with the limits of modernism, this book confronts the belief that the crafts are manual and technical but never intellectual arts.
