How revolutionary was Russian revolutionary design?

Alice Rawsthorn discusses the initial impact and enduring influence of the Russian Revolution on design, architecture and fashion: from the role of the Constructivist artist and designer László Moholy-Nagy in revitalising the Bauhaus in the mid-1920s to the recent emergence of a new wave of social and humanitarian designers. 

Alice Rawsthorn writes about design in the International New York Times and frieze.  Her latest book Hello World: Where Design Meets Life explores design’s impact on our lives: past, present and future.  Alice speaks on design at important global events including TED and the World Economic Forum’s annual meetings at Davos, Switzerland.  Born in Manchester and based in London, Alice is chair of trustees of the Chisenhale Gallery and the contemporary dance group Michael Clark Company, and a trustee of the Whitechapel Gallery.  She was awarded an Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to design and the arts.

Enjoy food and drink, including our guest Beluga Vodka, at the Knowledge Centre Bar from 18.00 and after the event until the Bar closes at 22.00.
