Talk: Bauhaus Goes West at Daunt Books

Thursday, 9 May – 6:30pm Daunt Books, 51 South End Road, Hampstead, London NW3 2QB, UK

Book Event £5.00

Bauhaus Goes West tells the fascinating story of the journey taken by the Bauhaus – both the concept behind the school and some of the individuals who represented it – from Germany to Britain and the United States.

It is therefore a story of cultural exchange, not only between the Bauhaus émigrés and the countries to which they moved, but also in the other direction, focusing in particular on Britain.

Most significantly, perhaps, it considers in detail the presence in the UK during the 1930s of three of the school’s most important figures – Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and László Moholy-Nagy – using meticulous research to tell for the first time the stories of their British experiences in parallel.
