Meghan Forbes will talk about the life of Lucia Moholy, from her origins in Prague, years at the Bauhaus, failed attempts at immigration to the United States during World War II, and eventual settlement in Switzerland, where she lived until her death in 1989 at the age of 95. The talk will feature a glimpse into Lucia Moholy’s remaining archive, including photographs, letters, and diary entries, to tell the story of a woman whose important place in the history of twentieth century Modernism has been subsumed by her male counterparts.
The discussion will be followed by a screening of a ballet created by another Bauhaus member, Oskar Schlemmer.
