Gallery Talk: Building, Dwelling, Landscape: Bauhaus in Dessau

12 February 12:30pm - 1:00pm
Organized by: Harvard Art Museums
Venue: Harvard Art Museums
32 Quincy St

Charlotte Leib, curatorial intern at the Harvard Art Museums and graduate student at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, will give this gallery talk.


Presented in conjunction with the exhibition The Bauhaus and Harvard (February 8–July 28, 2019), the talk will discuss how the New Architecture of the Bauhaus aimed to transform the domestic dwelling into a rational, efficient, and functional space while also seeking to bring inside and outside space into closer harmony. Leib will focus on photographs and drawings of three projects in Dessau, Germany: the Bauhaus Campus (1926), the Bauhaus Faculty Housing (1926–28), and the Törten Housing Development (1926–28).


Free with museums admission. Gallery talks are limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before each talk, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.


Please meet in the Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk. Museums staff will be on hand to collect tickets.
