Barkers and Bauhaus… the Museo de Bellas Artes in Santiago (updated)

Here is the Museum of Fine Art in Santiago. What a treasure trove of different artists and styles. We had a great time exploring at length.

Bau Haus film

Next was a Bauhaus Film exhibit. It’s easy to forget sometimes how influential this design movement was and still is.

Bauhaus screensThis exhibit featured Bauhaus films being displayed on translucent screens positioned around the room. Viewers were able to walk around the exhibit and experience the films from different perspectives. We really enjoyed this.
