Tangents

USA, 1994 (MIFF 1995, Animation)

Director: Mark Keane, Linda Keane

An animated exploration of twentieth century abstraction and architectural icons as devel­oped in Russian Constructivism and at the Bauhaus before its closure by the Nazis 1933. Of particular interest to students of modern archi­tecture this little gem seems to be speaking for Moholy-Nagy and his success in creating the New Bauhaus on Chicago during 1937.
