Arbeitsrat für Kunst

Arbeitsrat für Kunst. Group of German architects founded (1918) by Bruno Taut, which included Otto Bartning, Walter Gropius, Erich Mendelsohn, and Max Taut, with several artists. Taut wanted the group to wield political influence similar to the Soldiers' and Workers' Councils, but this failed, and Gropius took over the leadership in 1919. When the latter took up his post at the Bauhaus in Weimar, the programme there reflected the ideals of the Arbeitsrat (Work Council for Art), which called for the fusion of the arts under the wing of architecture, the symbolic Bauprojekt. The group exhibited and published widely, but disbanded in 1921 through lack of funds.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
