Bauhaus on Screen


Harold M. Williams Auditorium

This is a past event

As part of the international celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, Bauhaus on Screen presents a 90-minute program of short films produced between 1919 and 1933 by figures at or associated with the landmark institution. Representing a diversity of approaches, the films highlight artists' experiments with the relatively young medium and illustrate the emergence of abstraction in film. Following the screening, Thomas Tode will give a talk framing the films within their broader contexts.

Thomas Tode is a filmmaker, writer, and curator based out of Hamburg. He has curated screening programs for the Kinemathek Hamburg and the Cinepolis film festival. In addition, he has published books on avant-garde filmography, the Dutch documentarian Johan van der Keuken, the French film director Chris Marker, the Russian documentary film director Dziga Vertov, the Soviet silent film Battleship Potemkin, and the work developed at the Bauhaus.

This screening complements the Getty Research Institute exhibitions Bauhaus Beginnings, on view in the Research Institute galleries from June 11 to October 13, 2019, and Bauhaus: Building the New Artist, launching online June 11, 2019.
