On 17 October 1924 a group of seventeen Bauhaus students wrote a letter of protest to Walter Gropius, claiming that Bauhaus designs should not be published under the label “Bauhaus,” as Gropius and the council of masters (Meisterrat) had decided, but rather under their authors’ names.1 This document has not attracted much attention in studies on the Bauhaus until now, and is very useful to discussions concerning authorship and anonymity at the Bauhaus; it facilitates a reading of Bauhaus objects as oscillating between being part of the identity of the school and an artist’s individual work.
