The fourth issue of the new Bauhaus Dessau Foundation's new journal is dedicated to photography at the Bauhaus and exclusively features twenty-six works from Thomas Walther's collection that one day will expand the collection in Dessau. An interview with the collector Thomas Walther and an accompanying essay by Rolf Sachsse on the history of collecting Bauhaus photography open the issue. Wolfgang Th ner describes the Dessau masters' home for L szl Moholy-Nagy and Lyonel Feininger as the nucleus of Bauhaus photography, and Torsten Blume devotes himself to the photo albums of students and teachers at the Bauhaus that have shaped its identity. Gottfried J ger remembers Moholy-Nagy as the Leonardo of the twentieth century, and Franziska Brons writes about the early days of aerial photography. Plus a magazine section: Fifty years of Gropiusstadt, gleanings from documenta from the perspective of the Bauhaus, and Marcel Breuer and eroticism.
