Kurt Kranz: Die Programmierung des Schönen [Programming Beauty]
Kurt Kranz: Die Programmierung des Schönen [Programming Beauty] – Spector Books
For many years, the artist Kurt Kranz explored the foundations of visual design – colour, form and structure – through consistently new and quasi-scientific processes. In doing so, he drew on theories of geometry, colour and cognitive psychology. During his studies at the Bauhaus, Kranz was inspired in important ways by his teachers Josef Albers, Walter Peterhans, Joost Schmidt, Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky. His research into the foundations of visual art led Kranz to develop design principles that, in the strict sense of the Bauhaus program, he implemented in the fields of both free and applied art, including painting, drawing, typography, graphic design, exhibition design, book design and film.
