From the Bauhaus to the
New World

previous pagenext page

This exhibition was organised by Tate Modern in order to rediscover two pioneers of Modernism: Josef Albers and László Moholy-Nagy. With works spanning four decades, the exhibition was divided into two distinct parts: 'From the Bauhaus' focused on a number of concerns both artists shared during their time in Germany, while 'To the New World' followed their separate paths after their emigration to the United States in the 1930s.

Working closely with the curator, we manipulated the content to reflect the same juxtapositions and narratives pursued in the exhibition. Reflecting the experimental approach of both artists, the essays of the catalogue were positioned between the two plate sections, so that the book starts and ends with the main subject matter: the artists’ works.
