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 third in the series, features Adrian Sudhalter, Assistant Research Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture, The Museum of Modern Art, as she discusses Ise Gropius’s role as spokesperson for the Bauhaus; and Claire Zimmerman, Assistant Professor, Department of the History of Art and Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, University of Michigan, who explores the central role of Lucia Moholy’s photographs in the representation of modern architecture in the first decades of the twentieth century. Leah Dickerman, Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture, and co-organizer of Bauhaus 1919–1933: Workshops for Modernity, moderates the conversation.
In conjunction with the exhibition Bauhaus 1919–1933: Workshops for Modernity
