Before and After 1933: The International Legacy of the Bauhaus

Podcast cover
Read more
Friday, January 22, 2010
10:00 AM–5:00 PM

The legacy of the Bauhaus has been shaped by the tides of the twentieth century. After the school’s forced closing in 1933, many of its faculty and students left Germany for the Americas, Palestine, South Africa, and elsewhere. Through this diaspora, varied understandings of the Bauhaus proliferated, and over many years it served as a key symbol in intellectual and political debates around the world. In the United States, Bauhaus émigrés were influential teachers of several generations of art and architecture students, both drawing on and transforming pedagogical principles developed at the school. In both parts of divided postwar Germany, the Bauhaus played a weighty symbolic role as an emblem of the aspirations of a new German democratic state. In this one-day symposium, scholars offer new perspectives on aspects of the international legacy of the Bauhaus after 1933 through individual presentations and conversations.

Podcast cover

December 01, 2009, 6:30 PM

The interdisciplinary innovations in design, movement, and performance that were characteristic of the Bauhaus had a great impact on the era’s musical vanguard. Several significant composers had ties to the Bauhaus and many others were represented in Bauhaus performances, forging an entirely new musical language that incorporated the school’s unique ethos. In this concert, which accompanies the exhibition Bauhaus 1919–1933: Workshops for Modernity, Maria Tegzes, soprano, and Geoffrey Burleson, pianist and Director of Performance Studies and Coordinator of Piano Studies, Music Department, Hunter College, City University of New York, perform selected Bauhaus musical compositions. The program includes pieces by George Antheil, Ferruccio Busoni, Paul Hindemith, Ernst Krenek, Arnold Schoenberg, and Oskar Schlemmer. Burleson also offers introductory commentary, setting the historical context for music at the Bauhaus.

World Art | Art World: Changing Perspectives on Modern and Contemporary Art
The Museum of Modern Art's Second Annual Graduate Symposium
In the past few decades, the art world has seen unprecedented growth and globalization. These developments are apparent in a number of areas: new and larger museums and cultural institutions; a thriving market of galleries, art fairs, and biennials around the world; new press outlets for the dissemination of art criticism, marketing, and education through traditional and new media; increased attention, research, and art that addresses non-Western subject matter; and the professionalization of artists, museum administrators, and curators through emerging MA, MFA, and PhD programs.
How do critics and scholars comprehend the significance of both local and international artistic activity? What traditional and new tools for analysis do they use? Art historian James Elkins has recently written that the prospect of world art history raises questions about the discipline's limits and future. Indeed, Western art history's traditional methods, assumptions, and parameters of research have been under debate for at least the last four decades. This symposium sought papers that drew on a variety of disciplines and approaches to address histories of world art and emerging trends in the contemporary art world, while focusing on specific works or projects.
