Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus in 2019, the Bauhaus-Archive / Museum für Gestaltung in Berlin is presenting its unique »New Bauhaus« photography collection. The show is open until March 5th 2018. In addition to the exhibition design, gewerkdesign also designed the accompanying catalogue. Luxuriously illustrated, the catalogue presents 80 years of photography at the »New Bauhaus« and later Institute of Design in Chicago. There, teachers like László Moholy-Nagy, György Kepes, Arthur Siegel, Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind encouraged a new approach to the medium of photography. Their experimental spirit continues to influence generations of photographers up till today. Showing the »New Bauhaus Chicago« school’s creativity and keenness to experiment was the exhibition design’s primary objective. The catalogue, too, is inspired by the design of the »New Bauhaus« and plays with its materials, colours, and motives: the design elaborates on the transparencies, reflections, and colourful plastics often used in its experimental films and photography.
Press comments: »The catalogue makes one look forward to the Bauhaus year 2019.« (Kunstbuch Anzeiger.de, 05.01.2018)
