CfP: The Bauhaus in the Provinces. Oldenburg, 2-3 November 2017

Call for Papers: Das Bauhaus in der Provinz/The Bauhaus in the Provinces. Landesmuseum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte, Oldenburg, 2-3 November 2017.

The research project “The Bauhaus in Oldenburg – Avant-garde in the Provinces” examines the history of cooperation between the Landesmuseum Oldenburg with the Bauhaus movement during the period of the Weimar Republic. It also highlights the work of four Bauhaus members from the Oldenburg region and East Frisia, acting as representatives of the spreading and reverberations of the Bauhaus philosophy in the provinces. The exemplary biographies of Hermann Gautel, Hans Martin Fricke, Karl Schwoon and Hin Bredendieck serve to reconstruct the story behind the liberal and innovative Bauhaus concept. It tells us of the utopia, adaptation and emigration of the Bauhaus ideas, and illustrates their considerable influence right up to the present day.
The key issues of the symposium, the full call for papers, and the instructions for the submission can be accessed here.
Interested parties are kindly invited to submit their proposal (ca. 300 words) for a lecture of about 30 minutes and a short CV by 30th April 2017.
