RUF ZUM BAUEN. ZWEITE BUCHPUBLIKATION DES ARBEITERRATS FÜR KUNST.
Berlin, 1920. Orig stiff wrps, ( spine strengthed with brown tape), 28x16. 48 pp. + 2 plates with colour renderings. 45 reproductions, 26 full-page including the colour plates. Original pictorial wrappers over boards. A good copy of this fragile item. Introduction by Adolf Behne, and renderings by Bruno Taut, Max Taut, Hans Scharoun, Wassili Luckhardt, Hans Luckhardt and others. Ruf zum Bauen (A Call for Building) was the second book published by the union alternately called "Arbeiterrat für Kunst" (Workers' Council for Art) and "Arbeitsrat für Kunst" (Work Council for Art). This ambiguity may reflect the opposition between its original 1918 founder Bruno Taut, who wanted the group to wield political influence similar to the Soldiers' and Workers' Councils, and Walter Gropius who joined in 1919 and aimed mainly to the fusion of the arts under the wing of architecture. Scans on request.
