Laszlo Moholy-Nagy

15 03 2011

László Moholy-Nagy was a Hungarian artist, painter, photographer, part of the Bauhaus group. He was  a “a strong advocate of the integration of technology and industry into the arts”. He was influenced by constructionism, a mode of thought that came out of Russia. It thought that the artist should concern himself with social issues rather than personal ones. I’m not a big fan of these collages. They seem sterile and humorless.
