The Bauhaus in Britain
17 June 2019 - 17 November 2019Free
This free display considers connections between Germany’s Bauhaus School (1919–33) and the visual arts in Britain. It centres on the years 1934–6, when the Bauhaus came into sharper focus in Britain through the presence of key publications and protagonists, including Walter Gropius and László Moholy-Nagy. Living and working for a few years in north London, they encountered the likes of British artists Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson and Henry Moore. The display also highlights the work and experiences of lesser-known designers or teachers, such as Naum Slutzky and Grete Marks, who continued to live and work in Britain over the following decades.
