Vortragsreihe BAUHAUS/ARCHITEKTUR

Bauhaus and Critical Theory: An Uneasy Relationship

Frederic Schwartz

 

Frederic J. Schwartz is Professor of History of Art and Architecture at University College London. His interests include all areas of the visual culture and built environment in the German-speaking world from the late nineteenth century to the present. He has lectured and published widely on modern architecture and design, the critical theory of the Frankfurt School, the German avant-garde of the early twentieth century and the History of Art as an academic discipline. His publications include The Werkbund: Design Theory and Mass Culture Before the First World War (1996), Blind Spots: Critical Theory and the History of Art in Twentieth-Century Germany (2005) and ReNew Marxist Art History (co-editor, 2013).

 

 

The Bauhaus lecture series is conceived as a commentary to the Bauhaus 100th anniversary. In fourteen lectures and talks, the reception, migration and critique of the Bauhaus and its architecture are presented through a critical perspective. The second round of seven lectures starts in April 2019.
