bauhaus art is life

Bauhaus art is life is an exhibition that will be running until 12th August at the Barbican. The exhibition explores the world's most famous art and design school. With over 400 works ranging from sculpture, painting, architecture, film, photography, furniture, graphics, product design, textiles, ceramics and theatre. The Bauhaus is characterized by a culmination of experimentation, collaboration and play.
