In Weimar Germany, between the wars, the Bauhaus was the most progressive and influential art school in the world. Teachers included world-renown artists like Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky. Tonight on Inquiry, we talk about the very modern women who were students at the Bauhaus. Tonight’s guest is PATRICK RÖSSLER. He teaches Communication Science at the University of Erfurt focusing on visual communication from a historical viewpoint. We will be talking about his new book BAUHAUS MÄDELS, a collection of photographs and short biographies of the women who were students at the Bauhaus.
Our two guests on Inquiry tonight are LUKE FERNANDEZ, Assistant Professor in the School of Computing, and Co-director of the Tech Outreach Center at Weber State University and SUSAN J. MATT, Presidential Distinguished Professor of History at Weber State University. We will be talking about their revealing and important new book: BORED. LONELY. ANGRY. STUPID: CHANGING FEELINGS ABOUT TECHNOLOGY, FROM THE TELEGRAPH TO TWITTER.
