Exhibition: Bauhaus Now in Brisbane

The Bauhaus Now exhibition explores the legacy of the Bauhaus school of design by highlighting its visionary ideals and radical practices. Founded in 1919 in Weimar, the school moved to Berlin in 1932 and subsequently was shut down by the Nazi regime, forcing many of its students to flee the country. The exhibition will focus on the Bauhaus legacy in Brisbane through the works of European émigrés who were instrumental to the development of modernism.
