“Bauhaus: The Making of Modern”

Aug 4-6 – “Bauhaus: The Making of Modern”

The Aspen Institute’s Society of Fellows’ premier event of the summer, “Bauhaus: The Making of Modern,” is now open to the public.

The event celebrating the centennial of the German art school will run Aug. 4 to 6. Experts on the various elements of the school and its legacy will explore the tumultuous times that fostered the Bauhaus school, its iconoclastic leaders and their unique approaches, and the philosophy born out of its brief 14-year life that has had a transformative effect on architecture, sculpture, painting, industrial design and more.

Presenters include Barry Bergdoll, a professor of art history Columbia University and curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art; Leah Dickerman of the Museum of Modern Art; and Elizabeth Otto, author of “Tempo, Tempo! The Bauhaus Photomontages of Marianne Brandt,” and co-author of “Bauhaus Women: A Global Perspective.

Individual passes are available for $1,500 and include meals, symposium materials and sessions. Patron passes, which include an intimate dinner with featured speakers, are available for $2,500, $1,000 of which is tax deductible.

Registration is open at www.aspeninstitute.org.

In collaboration with “Bauhaus: The Making of Modern,” the Aspen Institute will host the McCloskey Speaker Series lecture “Constructing and Deconstructing the Myths of Bauhaus” on Monday. In this lecture, Bergdoll will address the Bauhaus’ impact on modernist design, which reached far beyond the provincial German cities of Weimar and Dessau where the school primarily made its home. He will discuss how reality and myth began to fuse in the perception of the Bauhaus through its exhibitions and clever marketing tactics.

It will take place in the Doerr-Hosier Center. Doors open at 5 p.m. Tickets are $25, on sale at the Wheeler Opera House box office and aspenshowtix.com.

#4 ASPEN BUSINESS CONNECT REAL PROFILES WITH LEX LUCIUS, Artist, Designer. www.instagram.com/tv/CKfp_c0lwjl/From our blog: "For the past decade, I have been the sole fabricator of the Herbert Bayer estate sculptures....The resulting works that I created have been placed in private collections and corporate locations throughout the country, including two monumental works recently installed across from The Mall of America in Minneapolis, MN. The work of bringing Bayer’s models to the public continues in my new location in Basalt, where I am working on midsize versions that may one day be realized on a monumental scale. I am also working on my own painting and sculpture and would enjoy fabricating for other valley artists. My studio is open to visitors by appointment.

Let me tell you what it’s like living with these mountains outside our window.I sit and meditate to their energy and receive messages to keep going on my path. To persevere.When I am on the phone with my beloved 83 year old mother I get reassured that she is okay and I soon will be able to be with her again.When I am exhausted and frustrated I look up from my work and they beckon me to drop it all and come play to reset.When I get a call from a friend in need the mountains urge me to stop what I am doing and go help.and when the sun hits the peaks in the morning they seem to call me to awake and attack the day with enthusiasm and positivity.Our mountains. Feel the energy. Listen to the messages. Get after it. #mountainlife#aspenreallife#themountainsarecalling ...
