ABSTRACT
The article describes the role that ancient Andean textile techniques played in the Weimar Bauhaus Weaving Workshop in Weimar, Germany from 1919 to 1933. As artists began to understand and learn more about artwork in the Andean region, its influence spread throughout the Modernist Primitivism movement. Artist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and collector Karl Osthaus helped to popularize ancient primitive textile art in Germany by showing it in their studios and collections. Wilhelm Worringer wrote on the subject in 1908 and explained that primitive art was related to geometry and spirituality.
