Bauhaus: Art as Life

  • 3 May 2012 — 12 Aug 2012

The biggest Bauhaus exhibition in the UK in over 40 years presents the modern world’s most famous art school. From expressionist beginnings to a pioneering model uniting art and technology the Bauhaus’ utopian vision sought to change society in the aftermath of the First World War. Bauhaus: Art as Life explores the diverse artistic production that made up its turbulent fourteen-year history and delves into the subjects at the heart of the school: art, culture, life, politics and society, and the changing technology of the age.

Included in the exhibition are works by the Austrian graphic designer, painter, photographer, sculptor, art director and architect Herbert Bayer (1900 – 1985). After studying at the Bauhaus for four years Walter Gropius appointed Bayer director of printing and advertisting. He is widely recognized as having been the last living member of the Bauhaus.
