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).

Ben G. Fodor

Incipit Vita Nova
An artist’s book on an essential contemporary theme: the role of utopias. A project which has taken shape over years, ‘Incipit Vita Nova’ grapples with the issue of new idealistic orientations, starting with the ‘old’, in some cases failed 20th-century utopias as manifested in structures and monuments. Semi-fictional architectural models correspond to photographic works and drawings on masonry, which resemble archaeological finds.
For the first time, connections between ‘left’ and ‘right’ totalitarianisms of the past and current excesses of the ‘plutocracy’ are extensively articulated in an artistic format – including via the book design developed by the artist himself.
