2019, Documentary, 85 minutes
Director/Producer: Alysa Nahmias

In 1937, László Moholy-Nagy came to Chicago to start the New Bauhaus, an art institute that aimed to pioneer the development and dissemination of modern design. The film’s narrative weaves original interviews with archival footage, voiceover, and stylized filming featuring Hans-Ulrich Obrist. The result is a new perspective view of a man who was ahead of his time and is increasingly relevant in today’s contemporary art and design discourses. Following recent retrospectives of Moholy-Nagy’s work at major museums, this film offers a more accessible and intimate, emotional journey through his life and his work as an artist, designer, visionary, and teacher. Moholy-Nagy believed that designing was “not a profession but an attitude,” he brought together art students and design students—something unheard of at the time—and challenged them to look at the world differently.

The screening is preceded by a conversation with executive producer Marquise Stillwell; producer, cinematographer, and designer/animator Petter Ringbom; and co-producer Ashley Lukasik; moderated by András Szántó, author, cultural strategist, and Art Basel Conversations host.
