bauhaus.photo.film - special exhibition in Brazil
The Bauhaus Archive in Berlin and the Bauhaus Foundation in Dessau, in collaboration with the Goethe Institute in Brazil, are presenting this newly designed exhibition to celebrate the theme year ‘Germany + Brazil, 2013–2014. Where Ideas Connect’. From the holdings in Berlin, 100 key works from the world’s largest collection of more than 40,000 Bauhaus photographs are being shown. Photos of Bauhaus members such as Lucia Moholy, László Moholy-Nagy and T. Lux Feininger – with their dynamic diagonals, extreme viewpoints and professional tricks – illustrate the experimental and professional way in which the medium of photography was used at the Bauhaus. An extensive installation by the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation is presenting large-format projections of rare original films.
