Reading

Useful books on modernism, feminism and the history of gendered spaces. Hilde Heynen very good on women’s freedoms in Weimar and how that opened up the way for the idea that modernism itself could be interpreted as a space where women in particular had a place! The Bauhaus however was slow in recognising the contribution women could make and it took some time for them to be accepted across all workshop discplines – weaving for example was seen as women’s work !
