Bauhaus: Art As Life

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. Bauhaus: Art as Life explores the diverse artistic production that made up its turbulent fourteen-year history and delves into the subjects at the heart of the school: art, culture, life, politics and society, and the changing technology of the age.

Bauhaus: Art as Life will feature a rich array of painting, sculpture, design, architecture, film, photography, textiles, ceramics, theatre and installation. Exemplar works from such Bauhaus Masters as Josef and Anni Albers, Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Hannes Meyer, László Moholy-Nagy, Oskar Schlemmer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Gunta Stölzl, will be presented alongside works by lesser-known Bauhaus artists and students.

Young New Yorker, Lauren Tennenbaum was trained in cognitive science but started her style blog (IN)DECOROUS TASTE three years ago and since then it has developed into an online shop, selling her outlandish and eccentric creations. Playing with perceptions of taste with homoruous and borderline fetishistic gear for the body and home, her brand is as unique as it is of the minute. Indulgence tastes sweet. We chat to Lauren about beauty, opulance, decadence and the social status of studs and plastic.
