Screening: “The New Bauhaus. The Life & Legacy of Moholy-Nagy”

14 June to 14 June

The documentary “The New Bauhaus. The Life & Legacy of Moholy-Nagy” collects the vision of different agents close to Moholy who tell us the story of the New Bauhaus school, a space with creative methodologies disruptive to the time which changed the way design and materiality were perceived in the United States. Production company Opendox brings its passion to support diverse cultures and bring about positive change through many additional philanthropic and creative activities, from teaching at IDRC and Kaospilot in Denmark, to filmmaking. Its producer, Marquise Stillwell, is also a designer and a catalyst for building communities across design, art, and culture. His career spans across two decades, and his curiosity for people and spaces developed into a passion for designing systems to make environments better for all people.

After the screening there will be a Q&A in English with Marquise Stillwell, co-founder of Opendox, the producing company of the documentary, Nicole Vindel, food artist, and Jeanette Altherr, designer at Lievore + Altherr Désile Park.

The screening will take place in the auditorium of the Disseny Hub Barcelona. The audio of the documentary will be in English and there will be subtitles in Spanish.

Synopsis: An odyssey through the life and legacy of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, the innovative artist and educator whose pioneering approach to integrating technology into whose design remains influential and inspiring. In Chicago, The New Bauhaus evolved from its origins in the German Bauhaus to an extraordinary flowering of interdisciplinary design pedagogy based on the notion that “the whole field of contemporary architecture and design must be based on an indivisible unification of previously independent and separate fields “. Following recent retrospectives of Moholy’s work in major museums, this film offers an emotional and more accessible and intimate journey through Moholy’s life and work as an artist, designer, visionary and teacher.
