Moholy-Nagy began his creative career in the first half of the twentieth century in Lajos Kassák’s circle as one of Hungary’s youngest avant-garde artists. In 1919 he left for Vienna and Berlin, where he was influenced by Dadaism and Constructivism. On the invitation of director Walter Gropius, he became a teacher at the Weimar Bauhaus in 1923. The exhibition at the Ludwig Museum presents Moholy-Nagy’s photography and films. One of the most exciting objects is a compilation of all Moholy-Nagy’s films, shown together here for the first time and according to the artist’s original conception.
