17 October—12 December
The Bauhaus was one of the most influential art and design schools of all time and many of its tutors and students are widely celebrated—though, the women who were a huge part of the school are often forgotten. This series of talks at The Modernist celebrates some of these amazing women.
When we think of the Bauhaus we inevitably think of names like Gropius, Klee and Kandinsky. Although undeniably important influences on design and architectural history, they are all men. So, what about the women students who attended the Bauhaus, and how did they become overshadowed? As we celebrate the centenary of the foundation of the Bauhaus this year, design enthusiast Lauren Rickards gives a series of informal talks on forgotten Bauhaus women. Over an Autumn series of monthly talks Lauren focuses on key individuals, their work, and how the experience of the Bauhaus for women was remarkably different from their male peers.
