Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at the production process and research for the forthcoming 2019 documentary feature—called The New Bauhaus— by the New York-based film production team Opendox. The New Bauhaus explores the lasting legacy of the influential Chicago design school and its founder, László Moholy-Nagy. 

Presented in collaboration with The Arts Club of Chicago, the program includes a screening of exclusive footage from the film project, slated to premiere internationally in 2019, and a conversation about the school’s significance in Chicago and beyond, especially as it relates to women in design. Cooper Hewitt Senior Curator Ellen Lupton moderates a panel featuring the film’s director Alysa Nahmias, Moholy’s daughter Hattula Moholy-Nagy, and art historian Maggie Taft.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
