1 .<-NARRATOR:->Listen to a conversation between a student and an art history professor.
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:->Hi, I'm Melissa.
2 .I was just a few doors down getting some help in the computer lab. My electronic files won't open.
3 .The technician says it's probably a computer virus. She's working on it now.
1 .<-MALE PROFESSOR:->Yes.... From what I've heard, lots of campus computers have been affected.
2 .What a first week, huh?
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:->I know! Anyhow, I noticed your name on the door as I was walking down the hallway.
2 .Thought I'd stop in and, um, find out if you happened to have any additional copies of the class syllabus.
3 .The one I received in class the other day is missing a page....
1 .<-MALE PROFESSOR:->Oh, sorry about that.... I probably have a few extra printouts on hand.
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:->Great! Oh, and I noticed on the syllabus we'll be learning about, and eventually writing a paper on, the Bauhaus style of art?
2 .Sounds interesting-I'm looking forward to it!
1 .<-MALE PROFESSOR:->Right. But,...technically, it-it doesn't say "Bauhaus style of art"; it only says, "the Bauhaus."
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:->Oh...? What's the difference?
1 .<-MALE PROFESSOR:->Well, the Bauhaus is not really an artistic style, uh,...like Cubism.
2 .It was the name of an art and design school in Germany in the early twentieth century.
3 .The Bauhaus was started as an experiment in education... and one groundbreaking technique used in its teaching was that students actively participated in workshops instead of just sitting in classes.
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:->Interesting.... I don't have much background in art or anything.
2 .I am an economics major and am taking this class as an elective.
3 .Decided I wanted to broaden my awareness-try something new.
1 .<-MALE PROFESSOR:->Excellent-I'm really glad to hear that!
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:->So,...was the focus of the Bauhaus architecture...?
2 .[upspeak] I mean, I've studied German, and Bauhaus translates into "house for building"....
1 .<-MALE PROFESSOR:->Well, the founding director was an architect; however, he aimed to combine an incredibly broad variety of fine arts and crafts under one artistic roof.
2 .As a matter of fact, when the Bauhaus first opened, it was without an architectural department for several years.
3 .But later it became very influential in architecture.
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:->So I wasn't all wrong.
1 .<-MALE PROFESSOR:->You'll see on the syllabus that you're required to visit the Rutherford Museum exhibit.
2 .The exhibit will help you see that there is no single Bauhaus style!
3 .I think it's refreshing that this particular exhibit departs from the standard ways in which art from the Bauhaus is often presented.
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:->Which are...?
1 .<-MALE PROFESSOR:->Well, for example, by specific artist.
2 .I think it's a mistake to focus on a single Bauhaus artist and that person's individual specialty.
3 .I mean, the different artists from the school created different things-fabric, sculpture, furniture, graphic design, paintings,...even theatrical performances!
4 .The exhibit in the Rutherford Museum unites all these specialties through connecting themes... such as "motion" or..."the body."
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:->Sounds fascinating!
2 .Say, I've heard something about discount nights at that museum...?
1 .<-MALE PROFESSOR:->Weekends're full price. It's typically best to go Thursday nights. That's student discount night-50 percent off.
2 .However, next Wednesday is open to the public for free-it's a special promotion.
3 .So, I know what I'd do...!
