Edith Tudor-Hart, the Bauhaus and Isokon

  • Tuesday 11 June, 12.45-1.30pm


2019 is the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus art school in Germany, beginning one of the most famous art and design movements of the 20th century. Less known is that several of its key players escaped to the Isokon building in north London. Leyla Daybelge and Magnus Englund, authors of new publication Isokon and the Bauhaus in Britain (Batsford, 2019) will speak about Bauhaus graduate Edith Tudor-Hart, her photography of the Isokon building and the émigré community in 1930s London. The event will be followed by a book signing.

Part of the Insider/Outsider Festival
