Title: A Break with the Past: The Bauhaus, Hitler, and Chicago
Location: Smart Museum of Art, University of Chicago, 5550 S. Greenwood Ave.
Description: Join Alan Fern, emeritus director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery, for a talk about the people and ideas that led to the foundation of the Bauhaus, a school of architecture and design that opened in Weimar in 1919. Eventually closed by Hitler’s Third Reich, the Bauhaus school of masters and students dispersed—only to play a major role in shaping contemporary aesthetics in America and around the globe.
