Bauhaus at the Barbican

On Saturday we went to the Barbican to see the Bauhaus exhibition. As always, it was an extensive show with lots of interesting material. Still, I couldn't help but feel it was a touch dry. I am sure there are lots of fun, juicy stories about what really went on at the Bauhaus but I guess I will have to look elsewhere for those.

I love the Barbican. The idea of urban utopia, the Brutalist buildings only slightly softened by greenery hanging over railings from window boxes - all a bit strange, but I like it. There are often good things on at the Curve gallery with free entry. I am still sad that I missed the show with birds that played electric guitars.
