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).

Gerhard Labudda

Wabi — Pictures of silence
This book of photographs by Gerhard Labudda presents nature from a strikingly individual viewpoint: here, photography meets painting. Labudda’s studies of nature are assured pictorial sketches of a fascinating range of motifs.
His camera work adheres to the strict aesthetics of WABI philosophy, the Japanese language of form. This rediscovery of simplicity provides the viewer with an extraordinary visual experience.
Impressive views of protected natural areas in the north of Hamburg are juxtaposed with detailed studies of natural structures; associations with modern art are unavoidable. Colours and forms, pictures from a distant world, transform concrete and familiar objects into cosmic and metaphysical dimensions merging the pictures into a sensual experience.
