New Bauhaus Chicago. Experiment Photography
Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum für Gestaltung (ed.)
In 1937, László Moholy-Nagy founded the New Bauhaus in Chicago, thereby exerting a strong influence on American photography. In their first year, the students all learned the basics of photography and experimented with photomontage, photograms and light painting. Famous teachers such as Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind and Arthur Siegel left their marks on generations of photographers. This book sheds light on the period from 1937 to 2001, and as such on a key aspect of American post-war photography.
