This playful, highly visual book weaves together rarely seen images, documents and narrative to create a fascinating picture of one of the most innovative artists and thinkers of the first half of the 20th century.
László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946) emigrated to Britain after the forced closure of the Bauhaus, following his colleague Walter Gropius. The book examines the two years he spent in Britain in the mid-1930s before moving on to the United States – two intense years filled with commissions, collaborations, opportunities, disappointments, artistic exchanges and friendship.
