Bauhaus

  • Wed 11 - Mon 16 September 2019

Tour Lecturer – Tom Abbott

There is far more to Bauhaus than the ubiquitous image of the Bauhaus school building of which many of us may be aware. It is a broad movement of experimentation in disciplines including architecture, ceramics, metalwork, textiles, sculpture, stained glass, photography and print and typography. We shall see some of the buildings created by this movement but our focus will be the broad range of Art History, in visiting the museums dedicated to Bauhaus, we shall attempt to review this variety of media and encounter some remarkable artists in that process, some well-known and others less so.

A two-centre study tour based in hotels with travel on scheduled airline flights to/from Berlin Airport.
