The BAUHAUS ARCHIVE online!

Well thanks to a friend of mine, my dear Ana, I came upon this page: Monoskop – The Bauhaus Archives Online

And this is how they present themselves:

“Welcome to Monoskop, a wiki for collaborative studies of the arts, media and humanities.This page shows a selection of the latest additions to the website. For more detailed overview see the Recent, Contents, Index and Media library sections. Updates are also being posted on Twitter.”

Nikolay Punin: The Monument to the Third International: A Project by the Artist V.E. Tatlin (1920–) [Russian, English]

It is always a pleasure to see institutions sharing information and data with their public in a free manner. I could agree that perhaps the maintenance of any kind library has a cost, thus one should at least offer some kind of compensation for the documentation given. But coming from a country that has destroyed it’s citizen’s income and that censores most of the incoming or outgoing info, I really appreciate when the rest of the world puts out there all it’s documents/books/videos, etc. I cannot stress how usefull this archive will be for teachers, students, and scholars in my country. They will be able to have access to books that perhaps under other circumstances they would either have to pay a fortune for or just not be able to use.

So just click here and go knock yourselves out: http://monoskop.org/Bauhaus
