Das iPhone ein Bauhaus-Maschinchen?

Ist das iPhone ein Kunstwerk? Nicholas Fox Weber sagt: ja. Es sei die Verkörperung von Bauhausidealen. Via The New Republic: „The Bauhaus, open for less than a decade and a half, was one of those rare influential failures. It was like the Velvet Underground, the band that inspired all of its fans to start bands of their own. The art historian Nicholas Fox Weber—the author of The Bauhaus Group: Six Masters of Modernism and the executive director of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation—goes even further. The title for his new book, iBauhaus: The iPhone as the Embodiment of Bauhaus Ideals and Design, gives away its conceit, suggesting that it’s time we looked more closely at those machines we carry around all day.“
