“László Moholy-Nagy is a world-famous figure of twentieth-century avant-garde art. His visual art and theoretical works, photographs, films, educational activities and photograms – taken without a camera and now synonymous with his name – were of such significance that it is no exaggeration to say that since Moholy-Nagy, we see things differently; since Moholy-Nagy, our thinking about art has been transformed. His innovations over the decades have become so natural, his influence so pervasive, that we now almost have to rediscover him once again. [Press release from the Ludwig Museum]

    When I see these images from about 80 years (!) I think ( in my present dark mood): What are we doing!?…

    “He did not regard photography as a tool for the perfect imaging of reality, rather, it was his conviction that the camera offered new discoveries and possibilities for modern people to finally liberate themselves from the obligation to depict, to copy reality.” [extract : press release]

    My first experiences with photography were in the darkroom where I loved making photograms…it makes me wonder how many people will experience the ‘magic’ of this process now, with the advent of the digital camera!
