In his artistic work and experimental use of new media, the avant-gardist and Bauhaus teacher László Moholy-Nagy overstepped the boundaries of the conventional view of art. His methods were marked by interdisciplinary approaches, while at the same time fundamentally questioning the traditional perception of art. He was thus far ahead of his time and was already raising issues that are still relevant today. Moholy-Nagy’s multifaceted media art, as well as works by contemporary artists, have an immediate effect on the viewer’s various senses and thus convey new ways of working in art, for people with or without sensory impairments.
