MADRID.- A new production which takes a look at the multi-disciplinary work of Moholy-Nagy, focusing on his period of development of his fundamental aesthetic theory: the art of light

Over 200 works, including paintings, black and white and colour photography, films and graphic designs which reflect the vital importance of the artist for 20th century art. László Moholy-Nagy is one of the great figures of modernity, a fundamental artist whose theoretical contribution developed in parallel to his artistic and teaching activity. One of the culminating points in his creation is the essay Painting, Photography, Film (1925), in which he draws up an aesthetic theory of light: light as the pattern for art, art as art of light. This concept was applied to painting, photography and film, but also to scenography and design, the basis for Moholy-Nagy’s work.

The art of light addresses Moholy-Nagy’s work as a whole, focusing on the period after which he began to develop his art of light theory. The exhibition includes over 200 works including paintings, black and white and colour photographs, films and graphic design elements. After its visit to the Círculo de Bellas Artes, the exhibition will travel to the Martine Gropius Bau in Berlin, and the GemeenteMuseum in The Hague.

László Moholy-Nagy (Hungary 1895–U.S.A , 1946) approached creation from all different media – painting, photography, advertising and industrial design, film, sculpture and scenography – and carried out a radical experimental practice which does not establish any hierarchy between his works. Education was extremely important to home, and he devoted himself to teaching from 1923 onwards, when he started work at Bauhaus at the request of Walter Gropius. In 1937 he moved to Chicago, where he continued to teach, firstly at New Bauhaus and them at the Institute of Design.
