Abstract:

This is a gallery proof of a letter from Lazlo Moholy-Nagy to Frantisek Kalivoda, editor of Telehor. This letter was written for publication in a now rare 1936 special double-issue devoted to Moholy-Nagy which includes an introduction by Siegfried Giedion, essays from Moholy-Nagy and reproductions of his works as well as a post-script by Frantisek Kalivoda. Frantisek Kalivoda (1913-1971) was a noted avant-garde Czech architect. He wrote in the postscript to this issue that the "basic programme of this periodical [is] to discuss the problems of modern art and to indicate the precise connections existing between its various categories and, in particular, between the spheres of painting, photography and film."

In this letter, Moholy-Nagy outlines his vision of art using "creative manipulation of light" to create various types of light displays. He writes, "the flowing chords of my visions formed fully orchestrated symphonies of light." He ends the letter acknowledging that that while it is currently "impossible" to fully utilize optical techniques to actually form his visions that he will continue to experiment with light.
