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).

She has been working on “Einsamer Eros” (Lonely Eros) since 2008:a group of works that is far removed from any traditional ideas of portrait making. Her photographic tableaus containing scenographic arrangements of people, art historical references and brief sketches of psychograph-like portraits of young (single) women and couples  Subjective conditions are also examined in the new group of works “Über das Begehren” (About desire, 2011).
