The New Bauhaus (2019)

  • Documentary, F-Rated
  • 1h 29m

In the 1920s, rising artist László Maholy-Nagy taught at the revolutionary Bauhaus school in Weimar, Germany. Forced into exile by the Nazis, Moholy moved to Chicago where he found himself inspired by the sense of re-invention in the city. Initially at the New Bauhaus and ultimately at the Institute of Design, Moholy challenged students to create systemic, human-centred design. Moholy’s own output as an artist remained relentlessly experimental, with pioneering work created in a range of mediums including painting, photography, typography, collage, sculpture, and film. His central lessons as a teacher were reflected in his own work: the thought behind the creation was as important as the work itself.
