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).

Sophia Pompéry

In her works, which include video, photography, object art and installations, Sophia Pompéry takes diffuse atmospheres and situations and plays with encoded motifs, leading to unexpected results when we look closer. Taking physical laws into consideration, she shows unusual perspectives of the everyday and sets poetic processes in motion. This book, which is published to accompany her first solo exhibition in an art institution in Germany, includes complete documentation of the exhibition and its design is based on a concept by the artist that investigates the limits of the artist’s book as well as the character of her works.
