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).

Species

The catalogue accompanying this exhibition deals with the ever-decreasing number of boundaries between nature and artificiality. Using a variety of media (video, sculpture, drawing, photography and painting), five international artists explore the phenomenon of life and its technical manipulability.
The hope for cures for fatal diseases is countered by bleak and fearful visions of a world shaped by bio-industry. The latest developments in biotechnology and gene technology in particular have permanently changed our view of the natural basis of life.


Artists (among others):
Pauline Curier Jardin, Bea Emsbach, Simone Haack, Gustavo Lacerda, Iris Schieferstein
