Groovy. Baby.

It only lasted a couple of years, but the 60's psychedelic art scene in London was very groovy while it lasted. A new exhibition at the Victoria and Albert museum explores its brief legacy - Emily King checks it out here. That's a detail of Martin Sharp's Mr. Tambourine Man poster on the left.

"The Bauhaus Archive and Museum of Design in Berlin is concerned with the Bauhaus school of twentieth century architecture, design and art (1919-1933). Its collection focuses on the history of the school and its work." Instructors at the Bauhaus School included Josef Albers, Vassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Walter Gropius, László Moholy-Nagy, Marcel Breuer, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe - all of whom eventually emigrated, fleeing the approaching darkness. The Paul Klee to the left was produced during a happier time at the school, and elegantly represents a diagram of a failed system transfer.
