Bröhan Museum | Lucia Moholy: Das Bild der Moderne
Lucia Moholy’s pictures still go around the world today – with her photographs of the Bauhaus buildings, the photographer and publicist (1894-1989) left a lasting mark on the image of the art school. As László Moholy-Nagy’s wife, she lived with him at the Bauhaus and did important work for numerous Bauhaus artists and the institution itself. She was instrumental in bringing the artistic ideas and content of the academy to the public. The exhibition is dedicated to the artist’s oeuvre as a whole: in addition to factual photographs of workshop work and portrait series of Bauhaus teachers and friends, the photographs of the Bauhaus buildings in Dessau are among the focal points of her work. Her approach was revolutionary – photography and painting were of equal value to her and her architectural photographs became constructivist images.
