When it comes to art, architecture and design, the 20th century happened at the Bauhaus in Germany between the wars. The Bauhaus was very concerned with multi media and had a major impact on photography. Photography provided a tool for turning reality into abstraction in an entirely credible way, between art and craft. Led by Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, the Bauhaus set the trends and explored directions that photography was to continue to move into for the next 50 years.
This exhibition includes a selection of 124 original photos by over forty photographers, ranging from amateur to highly professional works, from snapshots to carefully devised advertising images.
