"Queer people have to some extent been erased from Bauhaus history."
The art historian and author Elizabeth Otto adds an important chapter to the history of the Bauhaus: that of the queer creative. Her book "Haunted Bauhaus: Occult Spirituality, Gender Fluidity, Queer Identities, and Radical Politics" will be published on 17. September.

In August all signs point toward relaxation. Perhaps you’re still in holiday mood.
