Bauhaus Imaginista

In the centenary year of the iconic German art school, Grant Watson and Alan Powers discuss the Bauhaus movement and its impact and influence on 20th century art, design and architecture.

Wilson is the curator of the exhibition Bauhaus Imaginista, a major international project marking the centenary of this fascinating and popular school, while Powers’ book Bauhaus Goes West tells the story of cultural exchange between the Bauhaus émigrés in the years following the school’s closure in 1933 and the countries to which they moved.
