MA: Film by Design – Bauhaus and the Moving Image on April 22

Courtesy of Goethe-Institut Boston

In conjunction with the Bauhaus Centennial, this film series will reconstruct how members of the Bauhaus—one of the most progressive art, architecture and design schools in the early 20th century—actively engaged with moving images between the years 1919 and 1933. (…)

Film sketches, abstract animations, cinematic form sequences, and colored lightplays emerged at the Bauhaus alongside new attempts to create an architectural film—or what Walter Gropius often referred to as “Bauhaus film”—that would capture the new architecture through the medium of moving images. In collaboration with the exhibition The Bauhaus and Harvard at the Harvard Art Museums, the two programs presented will shed light on some of the most overlooked aspects within the Bauhaus’ wide-ranging engagement with film.
