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).

No Compromises!

The Art of Boris Lurie
The Jewish Museum in Berlin is devoting a large retrospective to the NO!art artist Boris Lurie. His collages confront the viewer with the experience of persecution and imprisonment in camps during the Nazi era. Lurie combines disgust for people who were capable of persecuting and mass-murdering millions with revulsion toward a smug art market that is more interested in financial gain than in artistic statements. His drawings, on the other hand, take another tone. Here, the artist creates poetic images of his time.
