László Moholy-Nagy – The Art of Light

Gemeentemuseum Den Haag
29 January 2011 – 1 May 2011

László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946) made photography and film – the essential ingredient of which was light – the leading artistic media of his time. Through photography and film, art suddenly became accessible to all. This democratisation of the arts was entirely consistent with Moholy-Nagy’s utopian ideas. To him, art was part of an attitude to life, a collective mentality in which art and all other aspects of life merge in a Gesamtkunstwerk (‘integrated artwork’) or, better still, a Gesamtwerk (‘integrated work’), leading to shared progress. He was convinced of art’s ability to educate. ‘Art sharpens one’s senses, one’s view, one’s mind and one’s observations,’ he believed.

The App of the current show in the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag tells you more about the exhibits on display now, as well as Moholy-Nagy’s life and work. The application contains:

  • the entire audio guide to the exhibition
  • photos to every audio station in the exhibition
  • a detailed biography of László Moholy-Nagy with photos from the Bauhaus Archiv, Berlin
  • the films “Berlin Still Life” and “Light Play – Black-White-Grey“ in full length
  • useful information for your trip to the Gemeentemuseum
