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).

strictly geometrical

abstract art now
This book presents the latest trends and the newest forms of expression of geometric abstract art covering painting, sculpture, photography, video art and installation art.
A new generation of young artists is utilizing abstract art’s traditional repertoire and is re-interpreting the form in a completely new way. The debate with the geometric language of form occurs within the art itself – through adaptations or deconstructions of Bauhaus, de Stijl and Suprematism – and through the appropriation of design elements, computer aesthetics, film, and complex architectural hybrids.
Formal, ludic and ironic experimentation with new materials and media lead the way towards an explicit and contemporary form of geometric design.
