Icon: László Moholy-Nagy Retrospective

Posted By Daily Icon On November 19, 2009 @ 2:00 AM In Design Icons,Icons,News | No Comments

László Moholy-Nagy became known in Germany through his formative work as a teacher at the Bauhaus [1] in Dessau from 1923 to 1928. In 1937 he went to Chicago, where he became the founding director of the New Bauhaus (later named the Institute of Design at the Illinois Institute of Technology). The New Bauhaus, was the immediate successor to the Bauhaus dissolved in 1933 under National Socialist pressure. Bauhaus ideology had a strong impact throughout America, but it was only at the New Bauhaus that the complete curriculum as developed under Walter Gropius [2] in Weimar and Dessau was adopted and further developed.
A retrospective at Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt will examine the complex picture of Moholy-Nagy’s oeuvre in order to present the range of his creative output to the public for the first time since the last major exhibition of his work in Kassel in 1991.

Exhibition: László Moholy-Nagy Retrospective, October 8 – February 7, at Schirn Kunsthalle [3], Frankfurt, Germany.
