THE NEW BAUHAUS

Directed by Alysa Nahmias
Week 3 – Film rental available Friday, July 24 – Thursday, July 30

Often referred to as the “genius of all media,” László Moholy-Nagy worked in painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, film, typography, product design, and exhibition design. A faculty member of the Bauhaus in Germany, he left in 1934 after the Nazi regime shuttered the school. Settling in Chicago in 1937, he opened The New Bauhaus, forever transforming arts education in America and beyond. By drawing extensively on personal archives and interviews, THE NEW BAUHAUS creates an intimate portrait of this early champion of human-centered design and his enduring influence on American art, design, and culture.

Alysa Nahmias co-directed UNFINISHED SPACES (Special Jury Award SFF 2012), and produced SHIELD AND SPEAR (SFF 2015).
