About the Course

Burning Down the Haus: Broadening Perspectives on British Modernism
Tuesdays 29 October, 5, 12, 19, 26 November and 3 December 2019, 6pm to 8pm
For ages 18+ and all abilities

A century after the renowned Bauhaus School was founded in Germany, take a fresh look at the relationship between Bauhaus and Britain. Join leading historian and author of Bauhaus Goes West (2019) Dr Alan Powers, alongside a host of guest experts, to examine the actual contribution Bauhaus made to the phenomenon we know as Modernism.

Over six weeks you’ll hear from experts in architectural and cultural history and engage with a range of cultural issues from the time that still have contemporary relevance, including the place of architecture in relation to other arts, the tension between function and character and the ways that creativity can be liberated from convention. Timed to coincide with the RIBA’s new autumn exhibition, Beyond Bauhaus: Modernism in Britain 1933-66, you’ll also hear from exhibition curators and have exclusive access to original drawings, photographs, archive manuscripts, books, journals and ephemera from the RIBA’s world-class architectural collections.

You can see the course outline, on our website.

A collaboration between the RIBA and the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain (SAHGB).

Course Leaders

This course is led by Dr Alan Powers and Dr Neal Shasore (researcher and Trustee of the Twentieth Century Society). Guest contributors include Dr Julian Holder (University of Oxford), Magnus Englund (Isokon Gallery) and Dr Elizabeth Darling (Oxford Brookes University).
