In the year of its centenary the Bauhaus returns to haunt our museums. How do contemporary artists re-imagine a relationship to this legendary school? Are they scavengers raiding the ruins of modernism, appropriators of ‘good design’ kitsch or acolytes of an unholy sect?  Bauhaus Now! explores its legacy in Australia—both for contemporary artists and for art education—highlighting its visionary, collectivist ideals and its radical practices.

Artists: Mikala Dwyer & Justene Williams Gertrude Herzger-Seligmann, Ludwig Hirschfeld-Mack, Paul Klee | Michael Candy, Peter D Cole, Christopher Handran, Shane Haseman, Rose Nolan, Elizabeth Pulie, Jacky Redgate

The exhibition also coincides with the publication of Bauhaus Diaspora and Beyond, featuring essays by Philip Goad, Ann Stephen, Andrew McNamara, Harriet Edquist and Isabel Wünsche.
