My Bauhaus: Transmedial Encounters

This symposium hosted by the Yale School of Architecture marks the centennial of the founding of the legendary Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany in 1919.

The two-day event brings together art and architectural historians, artists, curators, and educators using various tools and presentation formats, including scholarship, film, performance, and painting, to investigate the history and legacy of the short-lived institution and its key members.
