Spring Lecture Series - Looking beyond the Bauhaus – Modernism sans frontières - The European Academy of the Mediterranean

The Gallery, 70 Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6EJ - Thursday February 14th 2019 - Ita Heinze-Greenburg, Professor at ETH, Zurich

In 2019, the centenary of the Bauhaus is a major event with many exhibitions and publications. Yet this seems likely to add to the large existing pile of information based on only a small part of the actual achievements and aspirations of Modernism during the period of its existence. In Looking beyond the Bauhaus, the Twentieth Century Society looks more widely with the help of experts in a number of fields, to offer an exciting but more broadly-based account in which the Bauhaus can be seen in its contemporary context. 

Coinciding with the publication of Ita’s book, she will describe a visionary project of the early 1930s led by Dutch architect Hendrikus Wijdeveld and French painter Amedée Ozenfant, with Erich Mendelsohn, to establish a multi-disciplinary school of art, design and craft in the South of France. Although never implemented, it represented an alternative pedagogy for Modernism to that offered by the Bauhaus, involving the English contributors Serge Chermayeff and Eric Gill.

Tickets: £8.00 members/£12.00 non members/£5.00 students   

All lectures are held on Thursdays at 6.30pm in the Gallery at 70 Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6EJ.  Admission includes a glass of wine. Publications will be available to purchase on the night.
