A Total Work of Art: Bauhaus-Bayer-Aspen

Bernard Jazzar’s lecture A Total Work of Art: Bauhaus-Bayer-Aspen is presented in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name in the Resnick Gallery of the Doerr-Hosier Building on the campus of the Aspen Institute.  Following the sequence of the exhibition, Jazzar will present a brief overview of the Bauhaus, highlighting Herbert Bayer’s contribution as a student and later as a teacher from 1921-1928.  The presentation also explores the school’s impact on Bayer’s development as a “total artist” working in multiple fields, including painting, sculpture, photography, typography, graphic design, advertising, and exhibition design.  These skills were enlisted in the design of the Aspen Institute’s campus, a project that began in the early 1950s and concluded in the mid-1970s when Bayer, due to health issues, was forced to move from Aspen to Montecito, CA.
