The Importance of Design in Solving Real Problems: Featured Speaker Steve Vassallo

The traumatic experiences of the First World War forced Erwin Schulhoff and many artists of his generation to re-evaluate their relationship with the culture of the past.
Erwin Schulhoff was one of the most exciting voices in the post-WWI music scene, but due to his death in the Wülzburg concentration camp, he is now remembered principally as a “holocaust composer.”
