Published in 1990, this unique, and rather scarce, catalogue accompanied an exhibition of nearly 100 works by Lazlo Moholy-Nagy and other Bauhaus artists that was held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, July 19-Aug. 28, 1990. Moholy-Nagy and his colleagues (such as Walter Gropius) were advocates of a movement called The New Vision (Neue Optik; Neues Sehen), who sought to move photography from its “landscape” models to an art that could offer new ways of seeing the objective world that was invisible to the human glance. New Vision advocates experimented with unconventional forms and techniques, using unusual angles, new uses of light and shadow, photomontage and collage, etc. This book collects and reproduces a wonderful selection of the works featured in the exhibition fromLaszlo Moholy-Nagy, Aenne Biermann, Paul Citoen, Franz Roh, T. Lux Feininger, Umbo, Walter Peterhans, Karl Straub, Franz Ehrlich, Heinz Loew, Walter Funkat, Herbert Bayer, Katt Both, Edmund Collein, Eugen Batz, Gertrud Arndt, Gyula Pap, Lotte Stam-Beese, Werner Mantz, Jaroslav Rossler.

“The influence of Surrealism on fashion and its ancillary arts lasted decades longer than the movement itself. This catalog, accompanying a 1987 exhibition at Fashion Institute of Technology, explores the extravagances of visual language as social and political comment, a revolution in perception.”–The Library Journal.
“The love affair between fashion and Surrealism began in the Paris of the 1920s when Surrealist artists plundered fashion’s imagery for their art, raising fashion beyond the level of mere style to an important expression of culture. This text reveals the extravagent and ingenious creations resulting from this collaboration. It ranges from the shocking Surrealist dresses of Schiaparelli and Dali, and photographic experiments with Surrealist techniques by Horst P. Horst, Cecil Beaton and George Hoyningen-Huene to the work of younger fashion designers, including Olivier Guillemin and Vivienne Westwood, who have all brought Surrealist imagery into clothing and accessories.”
This bountiful, visually lavish volume, published to accompany a 1987 exhibition at Fashion Institute of Technology, features the garments, paintings, sculptures, illustrations, window displays, fashion advertisements, costume designs and photography of Man Ray, Cecil Beaton, Issey Miyake, Horst P.

“The idea for this exhibition arose when we were fortunate enough to be offered the famous Hess Guest Book. Around this nucleus we have planned a view of art in Germany between 1910 and 1939. With the generous help of many collectors and galleries we have been able to illustrate the varied aspects of this complex and important period of German art.”
The Guest Book was a two volume book-set that spanned the years 1907-1956. They were the guest books of the home of Industrialist Alfred Hess and Thekla Hess, who were great lovers and collectors of art. Their home in Erfurt regularly gathered together leading figures of the art, music and literature worlds, and their guest books collected the inscriptions, autographs, drawings and watercolours of these times.
“The Guest Book is a remarkable, unique document of the most innovative period of 20th-century German art and forms a reference source of the greatest importance.”
With an introduction by professor and author Norbert Lynton, the first part of this catalogue reproduces works from The Guest Book, and the second full-colour and black and white reproductions of works in the exhibition of 1977. Includes a full catalogue of the works.
