The New Bauhaus
As the Nazis took over Germany, many of the displaced Bauhaus masters found refuge in the United States. In 1937, Moholy-Nagy came to Chicago to start the New Bauhaus. The school was far from successful initially, but through its various incarnations, Moholy-Nagy and his New Bauhaus forever transformed design, photography and arts education in America and beyond. In Chicago, The New Bauhaus evolved from its origins at the German Bauhaus into an extraordinary flowering of interdisciplinary design pedagogy premised on the notion that â€œthe whole field of contemporary architecture and design must be based upon an indivisible unification of formerly separated and independent fields. Viewers were invited to a private Zoom call with producer Alysa Nahmias.
