MCD Curator Symposium: bauhaus.photo
October 11 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
In partnership with AIA San Francisco and the Goethe Institut, and developed by the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung, Berlin, bauhaus.photo presents 100 key works from the world’s largest collection of Bauhaus photography, which will be distributed between AIASF and the Museum of Craft and Design.
Join curator Esther Cleven in conversation with Greg Castillo (Associate Professor of Architecture, UC Berkeley; contributor, “The Bauhaus in Cold War Germany”) and Paul Adamson (FAIA, TCA Architects; AIASF Board of Director; Chair, AIASF Housing Committee) to learn more about the exhibition and each of their areas of Bauhaus focus.
The exhibition presents classic works by Lucia Moholy, László Moholy-Nagy, and T. Lux Feininger as well as images by less popular photographers like Kattina Both, Irene Bayer and Max Peiffer Watenpfuhl and a few superb works by entirely unknown artists. Their photos use dynamic diagonals, extreme perspectives and refined tricks to visualize the experimental and professional approach to the medium of photography at the Bauhaus. The image these pictures convey of life at one of the 20th century’s most important art schools still remains fascinating.
