    I thought that this was a very interesting lecture. Previously I had no real knowledge of the Bauhaus and I learned some interesting things about it. The fact that women didn’t play a huge role in the Bauhaus and art in that time is amazing considered that women are great artists in todays world. I also loved the photomontage pictures that she showed, I thought that they were great, and really showed how great photomontage pictures can turn out to be and how much the pictures could tell a story in them.

    I have learned about the Bauhaus before in graphic design history class that I took. I’ve always found it very interesting, all of the designs, and works of art and craft that came out of it. But I have never learned about it from the female perspective. It is interesting to see that there were also women that have studied there as well. One of my favorite parts of the Bauhaus is the furniture. I also liked the photography that Marianne Brandt did, it was very creative.

    I attended the “Photomontage, Gender, and the Bauhaus” Lecture and I actually found it to be a very intriguing lecture. It reminded me almost of being in an Art History course as Elizabeth Otto delivered a great presentation displaying her knowledge of the topic. I have heard of and learned a little about the Bauhaus previously in my Digital Design Concepts course but I really found it interesting how revolutionary and new and risky and modern the art was for that time period. I really liked all Marianne Brandt’s work. I enjoyed her modern metal work and how it correlated to the male and female qualities and I definitely liked her photomontages as well with all the different photos and detailed images and how together as a whole they combine to forward a message to the audience.

    This was a lecture that was very interesting! i have had no previous knowledege of the Bauhaus and thought it was very insightful! I did learn alot about the Bauhaus, and was able to gain knowledge about the students, teachers and other faculty that attended there. i also thought that the paintings and other forms of art were great! Finally, learning about Marianne Brandt was also an enjoyment; to learn of how she struggled as a female artist throughout her time at the Bauhaus and how her works of art are beautiful! All in all, an excellent lecture

    I was just going to point out how different art is to people. personally I see streamlined modernism and see no art-just form and basics for people who maybe don’t have expression and like to feel something connecting them to art-but the woman, Marianne Brandt-she had talent and burnt all her expressionistic paintings when she saw modernism. That means its something more that I cannot see but others care about. To have that much passion for something I always saw as a waste of placement in galleries, well it impressed me-I’d never known it was possible.

    This presentation was very interesting. I had previously learned a little bit about the Bauhaus from an art history class, but this went into much more detail. I found it very interesting how women were beginning to be included in art, and this very modern school for its time had allowed women to enroll. The sad part is that the Bauhaus tried to limit the number of women and the few who were accepted were confined to the knitting or fabric part of the school. Learning of the struggle of Marianne Brandt to work in the metal workshop is inspiring for women today. Elizabeth Otto gave a very interesting lecture.
