Art Talk Live: Picturing the Modern Home—Lucia Moholy’s Bauhaus Living Room


Tuesday, February 23, 2021, 12:30pm to 1:00pm


Harvard Art Museums—Online

In 1920s Germany, the progressive Bauhaus school of art, architecture, and design sought to create art, objects, and environments that would revolutionize everyday life. This talk will focus on Lucia Moholy’s carefully constructed photograph of her own living room in one of the newly built Bauhaus faculty residences. In addition to providing housing, the home served as an important publicity tool, showcasing Walter Gropius’s architecture as well as the Bauhaus products with which it was meticulously furnished.
