Publisher's Description

The foundational curriculum of the Bauhaus as outlined by one of its foremost theorists

Hungarian painter and photographer László Moholy-Nagy (1895–1946) was one of the Bauhaus’ most esteemed faculty members as coteacher of the school’s foundational course and the director of the metalworking studio. This 1929 text explores the educational ethos that informed Moholy-Nagy’s personal teaching approach as well as the Bauhaus school on the whole: “Jedermann ist begabt” (everyone is talented).

This publication focuses on the foundational course developed by Moholy-Nagy, a curriculum built on structure, texture and organization, with observational exercises for students that emphasize tactility. It also touches upon Moholy-Nagy’s interest in photographic technology and its effects on human perception.

As the final volume in the publisher’s Bauhausbücher series, Lars Müller has released a facsimile edition of Moholy-Nagy’s text translated into English with the original design and typography.
