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).


à travers l’autre / durch einander

Platino (*1948), an artist and winner of the Hans Thoma Prize, works between the fields of painting, photography, and interventions in architecture. His exhibitions arise from an artistic process that, based on site-specific work in and at (work and living) spaces, results their transmission in photographs (of the external). The installation of these photos along with site-specific color interventions gives rise to integral exhibition formats. In the exhibition à travers l’autre / durch einander at the Hans Thoma Museum, brightly colored alien bodies are interwoven with colorful-architectural interventions in the existing space. The accompanying publication offers an insight into this unique space of experience.
