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).

Rao Fu

This catalogue presents the paintings of Dresden-based Chinese artist Rao Fu, whose visual worlds are shaped by the different cultures of East and West. He combines Western traditions of art in a unique way with the techniques and motifs of Chinese painting, whose most important tools are paper, brush and ink. In an experiment, he discovered bitumen paint, which he uses to this day in conjunction with pigments and oil paints. Within the practice of current painting, which seeks to merge oppositional visual and intellectual worlds, Rao Fu has found an authentic painterly expression.
