THE BAUHAUS COMES TO BERRY

ADFAS Shoalhaven’s August lecture will be presented by UK lecturer Andrew Spira who graduated from the Courtauld Institute of Art before completing a MA degree in Museum Management at City University London.
He will explore how the Bauhaus has had a far-reaching influence on the world since it was built in 1919 in Weimer, Germany. Today, nearly every art curriculum includes foundation courses which are based on the Bauhaus model. The Bauhaus employed some of the most celebrated artists of the 20th Century including Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee. The school combined an interest in nature with faith in industrial design, yielding a range of classic designs that still have an impact on the style of our everyday lives. The lecture will also explore the link between the Bauhaus and Australia: one influential Bauhaus teacher, Ludwig Hirschfeld Mack emigrated to Australia in 1940 and taught art and design at Geelong Grammar School for 15 years.
As the lecture starts at 7.30 sharp, it is recommended that visitors arrive before 7.15pm.
Importantly, the hall is heated.
$25 per person – includes the lecture, wine and sandwiches after.
