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).

Elisabeth Erdmann-Macke

Elisabeth Erdmann-Macke, wife of journalist Lothar Erdmann, whom she married following the death of her first husband August Macke, wrote in the 1970s of her personal memories of encounters with individuals who were important to her but who were also significant personalities in society and on the art scene at that time. Her book is characterised by great openness, spontaneity, astuteness, a keen and heartfelt interest in the lives of others and a remarkable confidence in her own judgment.

The 111 encounters or exhibition reports described by Elisabeth Erdmann-Macke are published in their entirety for the first time in this volume. They present a personal, lively and multifaceted picture of an immensely eventful era, both culturally and politically, and reveal to the interested reader and history of art aficionado a rich spectrum of previously unknown information.
