Bauhaus: Art as Life
3 May 2012 – 12 August ’12
Barbican Art Gallery

A new exhibition opens at the Barbican today, and the Olympic Logo a Day site pays homage in its own way. The ideas and teachings of the Bauhaus school and designers have influenced us all greatly, and continue to do so – their ideas about form and function, the experimental teaching methods, the architecture and living spaces.

The biggest Bauhaus exhibition in the UK in over 40 years presents the modern world’s most famous art school. From expressionist beginnings to a pioneering model uniting art and technology, this London exhibition presents the Bauhaus’ utopian vision to change society in the aftermath of the First World War.
