Bauhaus and Belgrade

The influence ideas of the Bauhaus had on Serbian architecture, art and design between the two World wars, are the subject of this lecture. Works by students from the time of the Kingdom of Jugoslavija will be presented, with the emphasis on the interest that Bauhaus generated which is visible on the pages of the avant-garde magazine ‘Zenit’, published at the time in Belgrade and Zagreb. Miško Šuvaković presents the relationship towards Bauhaus that Hungarian avant-garde artists from Vojvodina had during the twenties, the influence Bauhaus had on the great architect Nikola Dobrović and the architecture of Belgrade and Serbia, and on design and visual art after the Second World War. The lecture is in the Serbian language.
