The Modern Women’s Project presents a series of four discussions on female members of the Bauhaus whose important contributions have often been overlooked in earlier histories of the school. Tonight’s program, the second in the series, features Elizabeth Otto, Assistant Professor, Department of Visual Studies, University at Buffalo, State University of New York, as she discusses Marianne Brandt’s work in the metal workshop as well as in other mediums such as collage, photography, and photomontage. Either Leah Dickerman, Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture, and co-organizer of Bauhaus 1919–1933: Workshops for Modernity, or Adrian Sudhalter, Assistant Research Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture, will moderate the conversation.
In conjunction with the exhibition Bauhaus 1919–1933: Workshops for Modernity
Tickets ($10; members $8; students, seniors, and staff of other museums $5) can be purchased online or at the lobby information desk and the film desk.
