The Bauhaus has proved an unwieldy, even unstable, historical
subject, couched as an idea, crucible, and—for some—pariah. This
symposium brings together scholars of art history, architecture, and
design to discuss the various strategies through which the history of
the Bauhaus has been told and, importantly, how so-called Bauhaus
objects function—in the past or today—in light of the school’s
mercurial identity. Presentations will address the practice of key
Bauhaus personalities, including Paul Klee and Lyonel Feininger, and
the work of the sculpture, weaving, metal, and other Bauhaus
workshops. Objects produced by Bauhaus masters and students are on
display in Harvard’s Busch-Reisinger Museum.
