Bauhaus Goes West: Modern Art and Design in Britain and America

In conversation with Dr Tanya Harrod

Alan Powers is a prolific writer, curator and former Chair of the Twentieth Century Society. Following the closure of the Bauhaus in 1933, many of its teachers and students found new opportunities in Britain and the US. Yet over time, the Bauhaus became a shorthand for Modernism’s failure. A century after the school’s founding, Alan offers a re-evaluation of the school’s values and legacy. This event is part of a day looking at ‘modernism’ across music, books and art.
