Moholy-Nagy "was the dominant theoretician of the Bauhaus during its most prosperous era; his Constructivist/Suprematist paintings are among the finest achievements in European art of the twenties; he was a pioneer in kinetic sculpture; and his photographs, photograms and photoplastics led the way in exploring the full potential of photo reproduction. ... [H]e also made films, designed scenery and costumes, and excelled in commercial graphics and exhibition design. ... [This book] examines in detail the various stages of his career, from Hungary and Kassák's Activist circle during the First World War to Germany and the Bauhaus, from England in the 1930s to America and the founding of the New Bauhaus in Chicago ... [and includes] a wide selection of Moholy-Nagy's writings [and] extracts from his own letters, diaries and reminiscences, [and] critical commentaries of his work."--Back cover

The theater of the Bauhaus by Oskar Schlemmer( Book )

46 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few creative movements have been more influential than the Bauhaus, under the leadership of Walter Gropius. The art of the theater commanded special attention. The text in this volume is a loose collection of essays by Oskar Schlemmer, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and Farkas Molnár (who in an illustrated essay shares his vision of a total theatre space), with an introduction by Bauhaus leader Walter Gropius. Originally published in German in 1924, Die Bühne im Bauhaus was translated by A. S. Wensinger and published by Wesleyan in 1961. It was prepared with the full cooperation of Walter Gropius and his introduction was written specially for this edition. From Bauhaus experiments there emerged a new aesthetic of stage design and presentation, a new concept of "total theater." Its principles and practices, revolutionary in their time and far in advance of all but the most experimental stagecraft today, were largely the work of Oskar Schlemmer, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and their students. Profusely illustrated and startling in its typography (the work of Moholy-Nagy), the 1924 volume quickly became a collector's item and is now virtually unobtainable. Those interested in the stage, the modern visual arts, or in the bold steps of the men of genius who broadened the horizons of aesthetic experience will appreciate that this translation is available again
Albers and Moholy-Nagy : from the Bauhaus to the new world by Josef Albers( Book )

15 editions published in 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautifully illustrated book highlights the contrasts and correspondences in the lives and work of two of Modernism's greatest innovators, Josef Albers (1888-1976) and László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1947). Beginning in the 1930s, Albers and Moholy-Nagy each developed a rigorously abstract language that condensed art to its visual fundamentals: line, color, texture, light, and form. This language experienced a creative explosion during their Bauhaus years, when both artists moved freely between media and disciplines. Essays by leading scholars follow the artists' separate paths through to their emigration to the United States, where each continued to push tirelessly the conventions of artistic practice--Albers at Black Mountain College in North Carolina and then at Yale University, and Moholy-Nagy in Chicago at the New Bauhaus School and the Institute of Design. As highly influential teachers, Albers and Moholy-Nagy became important catalysts for the transmission of Modernist ideas from Europe to America

Malerei, Fotografie, Film by László Moholy-Nagy( Book )

65 editions published between 1925 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pittura Fotografia Film (1925) di László Moholy-Nagy è insieme il manifesto teorico della fotografia moderna, una riflessione sull'opera d'arte nell'epoca della sua riproducibilità tecnica scritta dieci anni prima del saggio di Benjamin, e un testo di teoria dei media e della cultura visuale che continua a stupirci per la sua attualità. Da un lato va considerato come uno dei documenti decisivi di quella straordinaria stagione di riflessione sul ruolo culturale della fotografia e del cinema che furono gli anni Venti e Trenta, in stretta relazione con gli scritti di registi e teorici come Vertov, Epstein, Benjamin e Kracauer, le sperimentazioni fotografiche di Man Ray e Rodcenko, i fotomontaggi dei costruttivisti russi e dei dadaisti berlinesi, il cinema astratto di Ruttmann, Eggeling e Richter. Dall'altro può essere letto come un testo che introduce per la prima volta alcuni dei temi ancora oggi al centro della teoria dei media e degli studi sulla cultura visuale: la capacità dei media di riorganizzare l'esperienza sensibile degli individui, il ruolo dell'arte nella sperimentazione di un uso umanistico-estetico della tecnologia, gli effetti epistemologici e sociali di quel primato del visivo che proprio allora cominciava a manifestarsi in piena evidenza. Interpretato in quest'ottica, l'efficace montaggio di immagini artistiche e non-artistiche presentato da Moholy-Nagy nella sezione iconografica che accompagna il testo si propone come il tentativo riuscito di usare il montaggio quale strumento per analizzare le trasformazioni indotte dai media ottici nel campo visivo della modernità
