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).

Unsere Geschichte

Germany since 1945
The Haus der Geschichte in Bonn presents our country’s most recent past, from the end of World War II to the present day, in a way that is both alive and current.
This book, vividly illustrated with countless photographs, guides the reader on a narrative tour of the new permanent exhibition. Prominent objects like the T-34 panzer, used to suppress the uprising of 17 June 1953, or the “VW Bulli”, an icon of the hippy era, bring German post-war history alive. Eyewitness interviews provide individual access to key events.
