Bauhaus and Photography

On New Visions in Contemporary Art

Does the Bauhaus still contribute to further developments in photographic pictorial languages? What role does the avant-garde photography play for contemporary artists today? At the center of Bauhaus and Photography is the reconstruction of László Moholy-Nagy’s photography-section at the legendary 1929–1930 Werkbund-exhibition Film und Foto (Film and Photo). For the first time, the Neues Sehen (New Vision) of the 1930s as well as contemporary photographs, sculptures, and video installations enter into a seminal dialogue between the factual exhibition situation and virtual reality.

Artists: László Moholy-Nagy, Erich Consemüller, Marianne Brandt, Lucia Moholy, Viviane Sassen, Dominique Teufen, Daniel T Braun, Wolfgang Tillmans, Doug Fogelson, Max de Esteban, Stefanie Seufert, Kris Scholz, Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs, Thomas Ruff, Antje Hanebeck, Douglas Gordon
