László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946) was a tenacious, restless creative who drew on the vanguard art movements of the formal properties of film, blurring the lines between sound and image and the act of hearing and seeing sound. In celebration of the Bauhaus centenary year, this specially curated BFI Southbank screening of Moholy-Nagy’s rarely shown, forward thinking films includes the playful Lobsters (1936) and the striking New Architecture at the London Zoo (1937).  The screening will be introduced by Daniel Hug, grandson of the artist and curator of the current exhibition at Hauser & Wirth London, and BFI curators Bryony Dixon and Will Fowler.
