Designing Women: Overlooked Trailblazers of the Bauhaus

Elizabeth Otto
University at Buffalo

A century after its founding in 1919, scholars and the art-and-design interested public associate the Bauhaus with modernist architecture, sleek avant-garde design, and abstract painting by artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, or László Moholy-Nagy. But the Bauhaus was much more than the work and lives of the famed few reveal. Perhaps least understood of all are the Bauhaus’s women, who made up over one third of its members. In the photography and experimental design of key Bauhaus women, we see a new side to this foundational movement of modern art, and reach a better understanding of the past to enable us to come to grips with what comes next.

The UA Museum of Art will be open to all lecture guests to explore the exhibit “A New Unity: The Life and Afterlife of Bauhaus.”

If you are attending the 3pm lecture, entry to museum begins at 2:30 pm and ends at 5pm.

If you are attending the 5pm lecture, entry to museum begins at 4:30 pm and ends at 7pm.
