Text in English and German
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 centre 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). For the first time, the Neues Sehen (New Vision) of the 1930s as well as contemporary photographs, sculptures, and video installations enter into a seminal dialogue between the factual exhibition situation and virtual reality.
