“You’ll never look at a bar of Dove soap the same way after watching this.”
After being forced into exile by the Nazis, radical Hungarian artist László Moholy-Nagy moved to Chicago in 1937 and spearheaded “The New Bauhaus” – a movement descended from the famous German school. An original Bauhaus member, Moholy-Nagy took a pioneering interdisciplinary mixed-media approach to art and design that was vastly ahead of its time. Motivated by the challenge of creating within the limitations of the Great Depression and then World War II, Moholy’s embrace of artistic versatility and technological possibility continues to reverberate in the artworld today. Objects that are now ubiquitous in our culture, such as the Dove soap bar, the Honey Bear, and the cover of the first issue of Playboy magazine were designed by students and alumni of The New Bauhaus. Featuring intimate interviews with Moholy-Nagy;s daughter and an in-depth exploration of his groundbreaking work, THE NEW BAUHAUS offers an illuminating portrait of a visionary teacher and thinker.
