Bauhaus twenty-21: An Ongoing Legacy – Photographs by Gordon Watkinson will be on display at the Art Museum of The University of Memphis, September 21, 2013, through January 4, 2014. The catalogue is published by Birkhäuser Verlag, Basel.

Conceived as a multidisciplinary project encompassing architecture, design, and photography, Bauhaus twenty-21 not only conveys the architectural history, but also illustrates the enduring philosophies of the Bauhaus. The exhibition, by creating a visual as well as theoretical dialogue between the timeless modernism of Bauhaus architecture and the visions of contemporary practitioners, offers a unique perspective on Bauhaus design philosophy as it relates to architecture and its relevance in today's society.
