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 New Building for the Nationalgalerie

The Competition for the Museum of the 20th Century

In the coming years, the Museum of the 20th Century will be erected based on plans by Herzog & de Meuron at the Kulturforum in Berlin, between the Neue Nationalgalerie by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and the Philharmonie by Hans Scharoun. The Nationalgalerie of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin will then be in the position to present its collection of art of the twentieth century in its breadth and complexity—from painting to video art and installation, to performative works. With this volume, the contractor of the building, the Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz, documents the idea and execution competition.
