Looking Back: Moholy-Nagy

A great collection of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy's fascinating collage work. A blend of appropriation and reconstruction. I have to hand it to him, he is not your average professor at Bauhaus school's foundation course. I assume any of his students would believe so as well. Highly influenced by constructivism and a string advocate for the technology industry within the arts, the Hungarian-born painter and photographer built on the knowledge that exists around him. Throughout the years, he became one of the pioneering artists to master other fields including sculpture, printmaking and industrial design. Here are a few collage pieces he made during his time. A beautiful and inspiring experimentation of the simple act of cut and paste.
