Hungarian Lit Night: Moholy-Nagy in Britain

One of the most innovative artists and thinkers of the first half of the 20th century, László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946) emigrated to Britain after the forced closure of the Bauhaus, following his colleague Walter Gropius. Freshly published, Valeria Carullo's book examines the two years he spent in Britain in the mid-1930s before moving on to the United States - two intense years filled with commissions, collaborations, opportunities, disappointments, artistic exchanges and friendship.

Get familiar with Moholy-Nagy’s unique perspective at a night of immersive activities. A talk by the author Valeria Carullo will be accompanied by interactive performances by experimental artist Steven J Fowler that take you to a journey into Moholy-Nagy's world.

The event is free, but registration is essential on Eventbrite.
