Saturday 19 May 2018|10am-4pm Tutor: Geoff Doel | Canterbury campus | £39 The Bloomsbury Group was an informal association of artists, critics, writers, biographers and economists whose dissatisfaction with Victorian attitudes and aesthetics led to a fundamental cultural and social revaluation, turning from religion, Empire and conventional sexual ethics and helping to reinvigorate the fossilizing British literary and artistic conventions through European and Modernist ideas. We’ll explore the Bloomsberries’ artistic, literary, social, political and economic influence through the works and vision of Virginia Woolf, Lytton Strachey, Roger Fry, Maynard Keynes, Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell, E M Forster and David ‘Bunny’ Garnett.
