Bauhaus had lots of women! Don't you know?


The Bauhaus 1919–1933: Workshops for Modernity exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art runs until January 25, 2010. There is a special website of the exhibit with lots of history and photos:
This is "MoMA’s first major exhibition since 1938 on the influential school of avant-garde art. Founded in 1919 and shut down by the Nazis in 1933, the Bauhaus brought together artists, architects, and designers." Also, there is an interesting new book about the women of Bauhaus that I might just have to pick up, after reading this article and others:
Haus proud: The women of Bauhaus by Jonathan Glancy in the Guardian,UK.
Here's the link to the book:
Bauhaus Women by Ulrike Muller .

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
