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).

Ferdinand Hodler

Maler der frühen Moderne

Ferdinand Hodler (1853–1918) is among the most important Swiss artists of the early twentieth century. He developed an unmistakable style within Symbolism and Art Nouveau. The exhibition Ferdinand Hodler: Early Modern Painter at the Bundeskunsthalle is the first extensive presentation of his works in Germany in nearly twenty years and is taking place in cooperation with the Kunstmuseum Bern.
The exhibition provides insight into the artist’s work on the threshold of the modernism with around one hundred paintings. Hodler’s penchant for ornament and formal repetition were considered novel among contemporary artists. The accompanying publication presents the artistic spectrum of this exceptional artist.
