SKU: 9783775723411

Edited by Hattula Moholy-Nagy, Renate Heyne, Floris M. Neusüss. Text by Herbert Molderings.

Laszlo Moholy-Nagy was one of the Bauhaus' most influential teachers; hisphotographic skills, as well as his writing on the subject, helped tosecure the medium's integral place in modern art. One of Moholy-Nagy'smost notable contributions was his extensive exploration--from 1922through 1943--of the aesthetic possibilities of the photogram (hecoined the term). These ghostly traces of objects placed onphotographic paper during exposure are part of a prolific legacy thatincluded painting, sculpture and stage design. Moholy-Nagy's photogramshave become emblematic of the medium, though they have yet to be fullycritically explored. This well-illustrated catalogue raisonné is thefirst to feature all of his known photograms--nearly 450--inchronological order. This exhaustive volume examines the artistic,technical and biographical circumstances under which the works werecreated, places them in relation to other parts of Moholy-Nagy'spractice and analyzes selected pieces at length.
László Moholy-Nagy(1895-1946) taught at the Bauhaus for five years, founding The Schoolof Design in Chicago, which became the Illinois Institute ofTechnology, in 1939.
