Exhibition: Lucia Moholy, Cien Años Después
2nd June-28th August 2016, Loewe Gran Vía, Madrid, Spain
Lucia Moholy (Czech Republic, 1894 – Switzerland, 1989) could not have imagined in 1915, when she entered in her diary her new interest for photography, that she would become the leading photographer at Bauhaus, where she began her collaboration in 1923. Until then, photography had not been part of the school’s activities.
Bauhaus was an experimentation and investigation center, where art combined with technology resulted in the most innovating design for architecture and utilitarian objects. There, Lucia Moholy documented daily activity in the studios and workshops. She also portrayed Paul Klee, Kandinsky or Anni Albers, among many other artists, whom she shared experiences for five years. Her photographic work has been essential to propagate, through books magazines and brochures, the school’s philosophy and aesthetics.
This exhibition presents some of the work of an artist, photography historian and art critic whose legacy is still, perhaps, not properly acknowledged.
