Composition Z VIII
László Moholy-Nagy was a Hungarian painter and photographer as well as professor in the Bauhaus school. From 1921 onwards he created paintings which were stripped of references. He explored color, space, light and transparency. Art became “something pure, liberated from usefulness and beauty, something elemental which can arise in each person.
“The reality of our century is technology: the invention, construction and maintenance of machines. To be a user of machines is to be of the spirit of this century. Machines have replaced the transcendental spiritualism of past eras.”
