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).

A Tale of Two Worlds

Experimental Latin American Art in Dialogue with the MMK Collection 1940s-1980s

Art and culture in dialogue: In a large exhibition in cooperation with the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires, the MMK Frankfurt am Main is dedicating itself to the interwoven perspectives of two continents and cultures. The exhibition examines commonalities, differences, and intellectual links between artists from different parts of the world as well as the challenges that cultural exchange brings along with it through juxtaposing above all the European-North American canon and Latin America experimental art. The accompanying publication presents new and surprising relationships between cultures in fascinating essays by renowned authors.
