Constructivism, De Stijl   •   Laszlo Moholy Nagy @ Wikipedia

Laszlo Moholy -Nagy began studying law in Budapest, but began in 1915 to serve as an artillery officer in the Austro-Hungarian army. Already at this time he drew sketches and watercolors. After leaving military service at the end of the First World War, he attended art classes and made contact with the Hungarian avant-garde. From 1920 he lived in Berlin and taught from 1923 to 1928 at the Bauhaus Art School in Weimar and Dessau.

In addition to his abstract pictures, which show colored, geometric shapes and segments, he also produced light-experimental works, photograms and films, including commercial commercials, and dealt with typography and stage design. Moholy-Nagy becomes increasingly important photography. Often it is the bird's-eye view, as in boats, Marseilles from 1927, that shape his photographs and images.

"The magical ability to create a particular space and time has brought me to photography, and the process of recording three-dimensional elements in the flow of time and fixing them in a two-dimensional image creates a new context."

In 1937 his work was shown in the propaganda exhibition "Degenerate Art" in Munich. Then Moholy-Nagy emigrated via Amsterdam to the USA and became director of the newly founded design school The New Bauhaus in Chicago. Financial reasons forced them to close a year later. The School of Design, founded in 1939, continued as Institute of Design from 1944, then prevailed. In 1946 Lazlo Moholy-Nagy received American citizenship shortly before his death from leukemia. © Meisterdrucke
