    The Bauhaus has proved an unwieldy, even unstable, historical
    subject, couched as an idea, crucible, and—for some—pariah. This
    symposium brings together scholars of art history, architecture, and
    design to discuss the various strategies through which the history of
    the Bauhaus has been told and, importantly, how so-called Bauhaus
    objects function—in the past or today—in light of the school’s
    mercurial identity. Presentations will address the practice of key
    Bauhaus personalities, including Paul Klee and Lyonel Feininger, and
    the work of the sculpture, weaving, metal, and other Bauhaus
    workshops. Objects produced by Bauhaus masters and students are on
    display in Harvard's Busch-Reisinger Museum.
