Everyone is talented: Bauhaus Pedagogy Keynote Lecture and Book Launch

Coinciding with the global commemoration of the Bauhaus centenary, Museum of Brisbane is hosting a lecture by visiting Bauhaus scholar, Éva Forgács, titled Everyone is talented: Bauhaus Pedagogy. Éva is an Adjunct Professor of Art History at the Art Centre College of Design, Pasadena, California. She was professor of Art History at the László Moholy-Nagy University, in her native Budapest, until 1994. Her books include: The Bauhaus Idea and Bauhaus Politics (1991, 1995); co-editor Between Worlds: A Sourcebook of Central European Avant-Gardes (2002); and Hungarian Art. Confrontation and revival in the Modern Movement (2016).

The event will also launch Bauhaus Diaspora and Beyond: Transforming Education through Art, Design and Architecture, a book offering a little-known Australasian chapter in the wider Bauhaus story—a legacy that continues to inform our conceptions of progressive education, creativity and the role of art and design in the wider community.

The event is an opportunity to explore the legacy of the Bauhaus ahead of the opening of Bauhaus Now exhibition at Museum of Brisbane in May 2020.

Presented in partnership with Queensland University of Technology and the Brisbane Consortium for the Visual Arts
