              This lavishly illustrated volume looks from both sides of the Atlantic at 80 years of photography from Chicago. At the New Bauhaus and what later became the Institute of Design, teachers like Laszlo Moholy - Nagy, Gyorgy Kepes and spater Arthur Siegel, Harry Callahan and Aaron Si...skind taught an uninhibited approach to the medium which influenced generations of photographers. To mark the start of the great Bauhaus anniversary in 2019, the Bauhaus Archiv / Museum fur Gestaltung Berlin is presenting its collecti on of New Bauhaus Photography which is unique in Europe. It introduces the protagonists and institutions who since the foundation of the New Bauhaus in Chicago in 1937 have inspired, created and collected photography and then presented it to the public. The wide range of illustrations extends from abstract photograms and material experiments to conceptual and process - oriented works series. Contemporary works from Chicago complete the picture and reflect the importance of the Bauhaus thought process for th e present day.

              Typotektur takes a look at posters from various countries and periods, which share a special feature of typography: the tendency to break out of the two-dimensional space of lettering and establish hybrid links with architecture. Letters, words, or entire sentences form architect...ural figures, which can be read both as pictures and as words. The playful handling of typography has led to an exhilarating wealth of variations in the history of poster art. Starting with contemporary poster design, the widely divergent strands of development in the architectural treatment of lettering are traced back in time through the twentieth century.
