MoholyNagyMetal Party, February 1929. One of the Bauhaus’s most visually exuberant parties, the Metal Party featured a multifaceted film program, including a montage by found-footage pioneer Albrecht Viktor Blum. Since many of these films are now lost, tonight’s program will include films that were screened at Bauhaus-related events and exhibitions around the year 1929, with a special focus on the themes that animated the visual design of the Metal Party: circles, disks, rotations, reflections, and lightplays. The screening will take place in Menschel Hall, Lower Level. Please enter the museums via the entrance on Broadway. Doors will open at 5:30pm. Free admission, but seating is limited and tickets required. For ticketing and more information, click here.
