Versatile interdisciplinary experimentation with the medium of photography began early at the Bauhaus, but only in 1929 was a photography class established, led by photographer Walter Peterhans.
Moholy’s photos of the Bauhaus building, the Masters’ Houses and Bauhaus products enduringly shaped the image of the art school.

As early as 1930, Lucia Moholy had the idea of writing a "photo book" and began extensive research. She solved her claim to write a cultural-historical history of photography by embedding the prerequisites, developments and achievements of the new medium in a broad context of political, economic, technical, aesthetic, artistic and sociocultural contexts.
