The Forgotten Women Of Bauhaus

  • LIGHTHOUSE - Edinburgh's Radical Bookshop 43-45 West Nicolson Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH8 9DB United Kingdom (map)

with author Naomi Wood

Writer and researcher Naomi Wood discusses the radical politics of the Bauhaus art movement which she discovered doing extensive research for her novel The Hiding Place. The novel focuses on a group of young art students living and studying at the Bauhaus Art School from 1923 until pressure from the Nazi's forced it to close in 1933. 

Naomi Wood is the bestselling author of The Godless Boys and the award-winning Mrs. Hemingway which won the British Library Writer’s Award and the Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Award and was shortlisted for the International Dylan Thomas Prize.
