  • Cuba: 20 May 2021
Runtime: 89 min
GENRES: Documentary
E

Offering a different perspective, this film traces the artist's journey from the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany to founding the New Bauhaus in Chicago in 1937, after immigrating to the US.  Beginning in the 1920s, Moholy-Nagy taught at the revolutionary Bauhaus school in Germany, alongside luminaries like Paul Klee, Josef & Anni Albers, Wassily Kandinsky, and Marcel Breuer.  But as the Nazis took over, many of the displaced Bauhaus masters found refuge in the US.  Once such master, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy came to Chicago to start the New Bauhaus.

Following recent retrospectives of Moholy’s work at major museums, this film offers a more accessible and intimate, emotional journey through Moholy’s life and his work as an artist, designer, visionary, and teacher.
