This event has ended.

This is the first one-man exhibition in Japan introducing the entirety of the Hungarian-born artist Laszlo Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946), who is known as a Constructivist and a teacher at the Bauhaus. His wide-ranging activities including photography, design, film, kinetic art, and art education were consistently in pursuit of “the new vision” brought about by “artistic use of light and movement” and therefore he is esteemed as a pioneer in media art. The collection belonging to the artist’s family, which is being shown in Japan for the first time, forms the core of the approximately 300 works and reference materials gathered from museums in and outside of Japan.
