“This enormously ambitious book makes it clear that the mixed-media work of Moholy-Nagy is as vital today as it was in the 1920s and ’30s,” comments David Campany. “Scholarly, erudite, and elegant, one could not ask for more from an exhibition catalogue.” Produced by an international consortium of museums to accompany the first comprehensive exhibition of László Moholy-Nagy in decades, the connections between the artist’s photography, sculpture, painting, film, and writing are explored and explained with great care in eight essays by experts from around the world. The book also includes extensive illustrations that cover the range of his output: from sculptural pieces to works for exhibitions, the printed page, or the projection screen.
