Eighty years ago László Moholy-Nagy founded the New Bauhaus in Chicago, thus providing American photography with a decisive creative impulse. The Bauhaus-Archiv photography collection’s holdings related to the New Bauhaus and the Institute of Design, which grew out of it and still exists today, are unique outside of the US and this anniversary will provide an occasion for presenting them. Photographs, films, publications and documents from the legendary school of photography, whose teachers included György Kepes, Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind and Arthur Siegel, bring this exuberantly experimental workshop atmosphere back to life.

The exhibition project is part of the preparations for the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus in 2019 and is supported by the Kulturstiftung des Bundes.
