CALENDAR LISTINGS FOR Friday, January
"The New Bauhaus" (2019) (Virtual): What is the relationship between technology and design? Can art and design change the world for the better? How does immigration fuel American culture? After being forced into exile by the Nazis, radical Hungarian artist Laszlo Moholy-Nagy moved to Chicago in 1937 and spearheaded "The New Bauhaus," a movement descended from the famous German school. An original Bauhaus member, Moholy-Nagy took a pioneering interdisciplinary mixed-media approach to art and design that was vastly ahead of its time. Motivated by the challenge of creating within the limitations of the Great Depression and then World War II, Moholy's embrace of artistic versatility and technological possibility continues to reverberate in the artworld today. With recent retrospectives at The Guggenheim Museum and The Art Institute of Chicago, Moholy is receiving recognition he never received in his lifetime. Featuring interviews with Moholy-Nagy's daughter and an in-depth exploration of his groundbreaking work, "The New Bauhaus" offers an illuminating portrait of a visionary teacher/thinker (89 min.). Trailer: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNGVmRHj8PA. Through Thursday, January 14. Free. Online.
