TALKS: Bauhaus Women 


When we think of the Bauhaus we inevitably think of names like Gropius, Klee and Kandinsky. Although undeniably important influences on design and architectural history, they are all men. So, what about the women students who attended the Bauhaus, and how did they become overshadowed? As we celebrate the centenary of the foundation of the Bauhaus this year, design enthusiast Lauren Rickards gives a series of informal talks on forgotten Bauhaus women. Over an Autumn series of monthly talks Lauren focuses on key individuals, their work, and how the experience of the Bauhaus for women was remarkably different from their male peers.

6.30pm Bauhaus Overview / Lucia Moholy-Nagy

Thursday 14th November

 About Lauren Rickards: Lauren is an amateur design enthusiast based in Manchester. She approached the Modernist Society with a burning desire to bring to the fore the overshadowed women of the pioneering Bauhaus school. How could we resist? Lauren wants to make art and design history accessible to all, and to remove the perception that it’s an elitist club, presenting ideas outside of academic structure, something we welcome. Lauren’s research will be presented through a series of informal talks, presented in a friendly and accessible way.“Two years ago, I decided to quit my job and return to university. To be honest I knew little about art history, but I now feel confident engaging with art and design and want to share ideas. If I can, anyone can.”
