bauhaus imaginista: Learning From

24 Oct - 06 Jan 2019 / SESC Pompéia São Paulo, R. Clélia 93, São Paulo, BR

The exhibition in São Paulo aims to explore the ethical dimensions of forms of appropriations in the mid-twentieth century in relation to depictions of vernacular and indigenous craft practices. Knowledge of “world culture” not only played a significant role in Bauhaus; the study of a variety of premodern, indigenous and precolonial crafts was another important practice for designers and artists from American continents, for example in Brazil as well as in North and West Africa.
