László Moholy-Nagy, a photographic innovator and instructor at the Bauhaus in the 1920s, claimed that anyone who remained ignorant of the photographic medium would be one of the “illiterates of the future.” Moholy-Nagy, his wife Lucia Moholy, Otto Eckner, and others brought photography into the Bauhaus curriculum and it was a key element in the school’s influential print and advertising design. Tracee the use of photography at the Bauhaus, particularly object and documentary photography, and explore the relationship between photography, the printed book, and graphic design.
