Bauhaus Now explores the legacy of the Bauhaus by highlighting its visionary collectivist ideals and range of radical practices in art, design and architecture. Founded in 1919 in the German city of Weimar, the Bauhaus school was adversely affected by the Second World War. In 1932 the school moved to Berlin where it was permanently closed by the Nazis, forcing many of its students to flee Europe in search of refuge.
The exhibition will focus on the Bauhaus legacy in Brisbane through the works of European émigrés who were instrumental to the development of modernism in our city.
Key Bauhaus ideas will be explored through contemporary and original works, including the role of light and colour play as a form of education.
