Bauhaus Now brings to life the little-known story of how revolutionary ideas of the Weimar Republic in Germany influenced modernist art, design and architecture in Brisbane and Australia. The exhibition reveals the migrant and refugee contribution to Australian life and art history in the inter-war period and post-Second World War years.

Bauhaus Now features original artworks from this period, plus a series of vivid contemporary recreations that demonstrate the impact of this movement in Brisbane and Australian art history. The exhibition will also show how the legacy of these powerful ideas is being re-interpreted today.

Curated by Andrew McNamara, this exhibition is supported by Conrad Gargett. Exhibition design by Speculative Architecture.
