Detail Summary
Date 18 October 2019
Time 15:30 - 17:00
Location Gijsbert van Tienhovengebouw

The history of modernity is commonly told as a uni-directional one of how its concepts were developed in Europe and North America, and from there expanded to the rest of the globe. A classic case is the Bauhaus school, founded in Weimar Germany 100 years ago, which became a global landmark of modernity in architecture, arts, and beyond. In contrast to the dominant narrative, this presentation looks at the entanglements and counter-currents inherent in the process. It looks at the Bauhaus from the opposite direction: not how it spread from Germany to Latin America, but how Latin American experiences left their imprint in Germany.
