371 pp. Profusely illustrated in b&w, a few in color. Designed by the author. Laszlo Moholy-Nagy(1895-1946), an important figure in the development of modernism during the first half of the 20th century, taught at the Bauhaus School in Germany from 1923-1928. Together with Bauhaus director, Walter Gropius and others he was a passionate contributor to the Bauhaus Bücher, a series of fourteen books outlining their progressive philosophy on the role of the arts and its transformative responsibility to society. The school was an incubator for these ideas as well as a production workshop that sought to incorporate advancing modern technologies for the common good. In 1937 Moholy-Nagy came to the U.S., accepting the directorship of The New Bauhaus school established in Chicago(later to become the Institute of Design) where the application of these ideologies were continued and refined. "Vision in Motion" is the distillation of his prolific years as an avant-garde educator, designer, painter, film maker, photographer, typographer and theorist. It remains a first hand education in the tenets of modernism, much of which has by now become inherent to subsequent generations of designers. Work of many others of the author's colleagues, collaborators - are presented in this landmark volume.
From the foreword: "...Concentrates on the work of the Institute of Design, Chicago, and presents a broader, more general view of the interrelatedness of art and life."
"This book is written for the artist and the layman, for everyone interested in his relationship to our existing civilization " (Moholy-Nagy, Vision in Motion, 1947, p.5)
