Join New Haven Preservation Trust for a lecture on the complexities and contradictions at Modernism’s foremost art school. Dietrich Neumann will survey the celebrations of the Bauhaus centenary in Germany and will examine the school’s history as well as its continuing influence. Although its three directors were all architects, the school’s impact on the built environment pales in comparison with its role in the fields of design and education.
Born in Goettingen German, Dietrich Neumann, Ph.D., teaches the history of art and architecture at Brown University, where he directs the program in Urban Studies.
This lecture is presented as a Docomomo Tour Day Event, a celebration of modern architecture and design where the public and organizations across the country participate in a tour or event throughout the month of October.
Lecture made possible through the valued support of Martha and Jim Alexander, The Blake Hotel, and the Herzan Lecture Fund.
