This provocative book examines crucial philosophical questions L
szl Moholy-Nagy explored in theory and practice throughout his
career. Why paint in a photographic age? Why work by hand when
technology holds so much promise? The stakes of painting, or not
painting, were tied to much larger considerations of the ways art,
life, and modernity were linked for Moholy and his avant-garde
peers. Joyce Tsai's close analysis reveals how Moholy's experience
in exile led to his attempt to recuperate painting, not merely as
an artistic medium but as the space where the trace of human touch
might survive the catastrophes of war. L szl Moholy-Nagy: Painting
after Photography will significantly reshape our view of the
artist's oeuvre, providing a new understanding of cultural
modernism and the avant-garde.
