Further Biographical Context for Hans Bönninghausen
Hans Bönninghausen was born in 1906 and was primarily influenced by the 1920s. The key innovations established in the early years of the 20th century were developed further in the 1920s and 1930s. This period began the careers of many radical and inspiring practitioners in the pictorial arts. However it was a period of reflection following the horrors of the First World War, and major shifts in politics took place internationally. The philosophy of Marxism was widespread among artist communities and groups. Established in 1919, the Bauhaus became a vital place for the development of ideas concerning the unification of art, craft and design – an idea which became known as the Gesamtkunstwerk.
