"Queer people have to some extent been erased from Bauhaus history."

Her book "Haunted Bauhaus: Occult Spirituality, Gender Fluidity, Queer Identities, and Radical Politics" will be published on 17. September. We talked to her in advance about art in a queer context, gender at the Bauhaus, and the forgotten activist and designer Richard Grune.
