László Moholy-Nagy. Painting, Photography, Film
This English translation of Moholy-Nagy’s “Painting, Photography, Film” is based in content and design on the 1925 German first edition, making the latter available to an international readership for the first time. The publication includes a brief scholarly text providing crucial contextual information and reflecting on the history and legacy of the book.
Staatliches Bauhaus Weimar 1919–1923
The catalogue “Staatliches Bauhaus in Weimar 1919–1923” was published in 1923 to accompany the first public showcase of the state art school Bauhaus. With the original layout by László Moholy-Nagy and a cover designed by Herbert Bayer, the book represents an important testimony to the legendary avant-garde movement, shedding light on the work and aspirations of the Bauhaus from its earliest days.
Mysticism and Mazdaznan
Modern, technically talented young people designing practical objects for an enlightened world: the fact that the Bauhaus was founded in Germany no doubt further strengthened its reputation, since both the Bauhaus and the country are internationally regarded as unemotional, rational and focused on reason. We take a look behind the glass façade and discover spirits in tubular steel chairs and true Bauhaus angels.
Always a Part of the Present
No other name is mentioned as often in the context of the Bauhaus as that of Walter Gropius. This is no coincidence. An essential secret of his enduring success is the effective network of loyal employ- ees and friends that the Bauhaus founder kept alive and nurtured far beyond the end of his university.
