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).

ROM sehen und sterben

Perspectives of the eternal city. From 1500 to 2011
“See ROME and die” As the saying goes. A city that has always been the site of endless projections: of Classical Antiquity, of the sacred, it is the eternal city, attracting travellers and pilgrims from all over the world, a city of art, a focus of longing and inspiration.
In the second half of the 19th century this changed dramatically. The artistic heart of Europe began to beat in Paris and artists began to take a more distanced view of a city that was a site of pilgrimage for classical ideals. This opulent publication accompanies the exhibition of the same name in Kunsthalle Erfurt, providing a special perspective of Rome as a destination and of the observer. This is reflected by art – right up to the present day.
