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).

Brazilian Modernism 1940-1964

Photographs by José Medeiros, Thomaz Farkas, Marcel Gautherot, and Hans Gunter Flieg
Featuring the works of four selected photographers, this catalogue explores Brazil’s path to Modernism. The visual language deployed by Thomaz Farkas, Marcel Gautherot, José Medeiros and Hans Gunter Flieg draws on the advanced forms of the Neues Sehen (New Vision) movement of the 1920s and 1930s. Their reportage, photographic essays and exhibitions helped to popularise the cultural avant-garde.
