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).

Portrait of a collection

Donation Gisela and Dr. Wolfgang Flügge
The Flügge collection is a unique portrait of one couple’s love of art. There are no limits to the collectors’ passion when it comes to individual art forms or the diversity and variety of artists in the collection. Over the years, they acquired more than 600 works of primarily western German art of the 1980s and 1990s.
This extensive collection was donated to the Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz in 2005 and consists mainly of graphic works, paintings, sculptures and photographs by renowned German artists. Many Eastern European, Spanish, Finnish and Swiss artists are also represented. The collection is completed by individual works produced by artists from the former East Germany.
