Discover some of the most exciting artists of the 1920s avant-garde
In the centenary year of the Bauhaus school of art and design, you will probably hear of Walter Gropius, Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee. But you might not hear so much about the women photographers, designers and weavers. Digging through the audio-visual archives, and profiling some of the most exciting artists of the 1920s avant-garde, novelist Naomi Wood will explore the life and work of the Bauhaus women who deserve to be put back in the record books.
Naomi Wood is the best-selling author of The Godless Boys (Picador, 2011) and the award-winning Mrs Hemingway (Picador, 2014) which won the Eccles Centre British Library Writers Award and the Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Award. It was shortlisted for the International Dylan Thomas Award, and it was a Richard and Judy book-club choice. Her third novel, The Hiding Game, is set in the Bauhaus art school in 1920s Germany, and will be published by Picador in 2019.
