In what ways do the Bauhaus’ innovations still contribute to the development of photography’s visual language today? What role does avant-garde photography around 1930 play for contemporary artists? The exhibition Bauhaus und die Fotografie – Zum Neuen Sehen in der Gegenwartskunst (Bauhaus and Photography—On New Visions in Contemporary Art) brings together works that represent the new vision of Bauhaus practitioners like László Moholy-Nagy, Lucia Moholy, Marianne Brandt, Erich Consemüller and Walter Peterhans with contemporary artists including Antje Hanebeck, Daniel T. Braun, Dominique Teufen, Doug Fogelson, Douglas Gordon, Kris Scholz, Max de Esteban, Stefanie Seufert, Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs, Thomas Ruff, Viviane Sassen und Wolfgang Tillmans. Contemporary photographs, sculptures, and video installations enter into dialogue with the objective photography of the Bauhaus decade.
Together with the photographic works by contemporary artists, the present exhibition opens a dialogue between the historical event and the present. The exhibition is part of the centennial program 100 Years of Bauhaus.
