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 Handful of Earth from Paradise

Magical Objects and Paintings at the Museum Morsbroich

A Handful of Earth from Paradise deals with the potential of art to objectify the numinous in a sensual yet tangible way and, conversely, to transform the profane and the everyday and imbue them with magic. This exhibition reveals an artistic exploration of fetishes, the magic of things and metamorphoses, as well as the ethereal, the transcendental and the sacred in the Museum Morsbroich’s collection of works.
