Out of the suitcase: A dispersed collection
In 1936 Marcel Breuer, who had emigrated to London the year before, designs a table for the Isokon Furniture Company. The table was bequeathed to the Victoria and Albert Museum by Gilbert and Winifred “Mainie” Cousland, authors of progressive children’s books and Breuer’s neighbours in the Lawn Road Flats. It is now part of the comprehensive collection of Bauhaus objects held by the V&A.

The Bauhaus Lab “Out of the suitcase: A dispersed collection” will study selected objects from this collection and research the provenances and migration movements, exhibition careers and historiographies in which they have played a part. The research findings will be presented in an experimental exhibition in the Bauhaus Building, and constitute a contribution to the conference Collecting Bauhaus taking place in December 2019.

Open Call
Young professionals of architecture, design, curatorial praxis and art and design history are invited to apply. Participation is free and all participants will be provided with workspaces at the Bauhaus Dessau. Up to eight participants will be selected by an international jury.

To apply, please send a CV, a portfolio and a letter of interest (in English) to the programme head Dr. Regina Bittner at the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation by April 15, 2019: lab [​at​]
