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).

Rajkamal Kahlon

Double Vision
Rajkamal Kahlon works with the visual material of colonialism – with ‘ethnogenic’ and ethnographic books, plates and military strategy books from the colonial era. She modifies representations of the ‘colonial Other’, appropriates them, transforms and destroys them. Her approach to the visual repertoire of grotesque, pathologised and criminalised bodies involves showing a change of perspective of spaces and historical eras marked by colonialism.
She address the issue of the right to personal self-representation and a reflection of the positions in a sometimes playful, sometimes serious manner, and in this way develops her own, fascinating aesthetic, which could perhaps be termed post-colonial.
