Graphic Design and The Bauhaus
May 14, 2019
This year is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, the pioneering art and design college established at Weimar in Germany at the end of World War I. Over the next 14 years, and in the face of much opposition, the Bauhaus was at the center of debates on modern design, architecture, and education, until finally closed down by the Nazis in 1933. At this Bard Graduate Center event, Paul Stirton, curator of "Jan Tschichold and the New Typography: Graphic Design Between the World Wars," and Barry Bergdoll, Meyer Schapiro Professor of art history in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University, will critically examine the achievements of the Bauhaus, and explore its legacy in 20th- and 21st-century architecture and design.
Tuesday May 14, 6:30pm – 8:30pm
