The Bauhaus Women
Obsessed with weaving
Weaving in particular had attracted many talented women. The most successful female students of Bauhaus weaving were Gunta Stölzl and Benita Otte. They enjoyed a lifelong friendship. The actresses Heike Meyer and Ute Wieckhorst (portraying Gunta Stölzl and Benita Otte) discuss this outrageously exciting time at the Weimar Bauhaus and the female struggle for independence as a woman and an artist.
