Isokon and the Bauhaus in Britain

Isokon and the Bauhaus in Britain

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 26th Feb 2020

Built in 1934 for Jack and Molly Pritchard, the Isokon building by Wells Coates, formerly known as Lawn Road Flats, was England’s first modernist apartment building, and was hugely influential in pioneering the concept of minimal living.

Its flats, bar and dining club would become an extraordinary creative nexus for international artists, writers and thinkers, including the Bauhauslers Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Agatha Christie, Philip Harben, Adrian Stokes and even a network of Soviet spies.

The Pritchards circle also included the surrounding Hampstead artist community, not least Herbert Read, Henry Moore, Naum Gabo, Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth.

The authors Leyla Daybelge & Magnus Englund will be giving an illustrated talk about the story of the Isokon, the Pritchards artistic network and the legacy of the Bauhaus artists during their time in Britain.

Cost: £10
