Once at the pinnacle of progressive art education, the Breslau Academy of Art and Applied Art has been largely forgotten. The Academy deserves attention, however, because it was a paradigm for art school reform in a time when Germany was rife with experiments in arts education. Different from its more famous contemporary, the Bauhaus, the Breslau Academy is a study in another aspect of the avant-garde, and its history helps complete our picture of the complexities of progressive art and architecture education during the 1920s. © 2008 ACSA.
