Finally - amongst all the patriotic Britishness we've seen from the major art galleries this year, (which is quite frankly, starting to bore) comes something exciting and definitely worth the wait - The Barbican surpasses with a retrospect of the world's most famous art and design school, the Bauhaus with it's biggest exhibition in the UK for almost 40 years!
The curators went all out to celebrate the avant-garde(ness) and set the exhibition a bit differently by starting on the top level, which was most confusing for the people who were not in the know. Opening with the conception of the Bauhaus and surveying the school's arts and crafts beginnings to it's welcoming of modernism through combining art and technology, bringing together an array of painting, sculpture, architecture, graphics, product design and theatre by Bauhaus masters. All set in a dynamic installation designed by award winning architects Carmody Groarke with graphic designers APFEL.
Not one to miss! On until 12th August 2012. www.Barbican.com
