This lecture explores definitions of modernism in design from about 1900 to the years of the Bauhaus in Germany, from 1919 to 1933. We look at Belgian and French Art Nouveau, the Vienna Secessionists and the Dutch De Stijl group. We will see how varied these styles of “modern” design were. We are very fortunate to welcome back Megan Aldrich, a decorative art historian, to lead us on this series. Come along to one or both lectures.
We have arranged a later start time, then normal, to avoid any conflict with commuters. We anticipate the lecture will end at 1pm. Please come from 10:30 for a cup of coffee or tea. We will also have a break in the middle.
