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).

Helmut Lederer. Fotograf

In his photographic work, the sculptor and photographer Helmut Lederer (1919–1999) dealt largely with the themes of face and body, travel and landscape, art and portraits of artists and the potentials of photographic abstraction.
His participation in the legendary exhibitions of post-war photography >>subjective photography>> 1–3 (1951, 1954, 1958) led to international recognition for his artistic photography. The sixties were an extremely productive phase for his photographic work.
Helmut Lederer published his work in numerous illustrated books, for example, Marino Marini (1961) and the key book Lichtnovellen (1969), creating a radical abstraction of photography.
This comprehensive collection of Lederer’s work is being published to commemorate what would have been his 85th birthday.
