Bauhaus Diaspora and Beyond

Transforming Education through Art, Design and Architecture

Philip Goad, Ann Stephen, Andrew McNamara, Harriet Edquist, Isabel Wünsche
A history of Bauhaus in Australia and New Zealand.
Bauhaus Diaspora and Beyond: Transforming Education through Art, Design and Architecture presents an extraordinary new Australasian cultural history. It is a migrant and refugee story: from 1930, the arrival of so many emigre, internee and refugee educators helped to transform art, architecture and design in Australia and New Zealand. Fifteen thematic essays and twenty individual case studies bring to light a tremendous amount of new archival material in order to show how these innovative educators, exiled from Nazism, introduced Bauhaus ideas and models to a new world. As their Bauhaus model spanned art, architecture and design, the book provides a unique cross-disciplinary, emigre history of art education in Australia and New Zealand. It offers a remarkable and little-known chapter in the wider Bauhaus venture, which has multiple legacies and continues to inform our conceptions of progressive education, creativity and the role of art and design in the wider community.

Superbly illustrated with rare photographs, drawings and artworks, Bauhaus Diaspora is essential reading for anyone interested in the reach of the Bauhaus and its diverse afterlives.”
Robin Schuldenfrei, The Courtauld Institute of Art

With its innovative approach to art, design, and architecture via themes of migration, networks and pedagogy, this book places the Bauhaus not only at the core of today’s problems and debates, but it also presents the works and voices of Australian and New Zealand practitioners and teachers in the fields of art, design and architecture that were previously overlooked.”
Claudia Perren, Director, Bauhaus Dessau Foundation
