In what ways do the Bauhaus’ numerous innovations in photography contribute to the development of the medium’s visual vocabulary today? What role does avant-garde photography play for contemporary artists? Bauhaus and Photography brings together a range of contemporary works that reflect the enduring vision of Bauhaus practitioners such as Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Erich Consemuller, Walter Peterhans, Marianne Brandt and Lucia Moholy, juxtaposing them with contemporary artists including Thomas Ruff, Dominique Teufen, Daniel T. Braun, Wolfgang Tillmans, Doug Fogelson, Max de Esteban, Viviane Sassen, Stefanie Seufert, Kris Scholz, Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs, Antje Hanebeck and Douglas Gordon. Contemporary photographs, sculptures and video installations thus enter into dialogue with the pioneering photography of the Bauhaus.
