Laszlo Moholy-Nagy: Biographical Writings
by Louis Kaplan
Publisher's Description
"In Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Louis Kaplan applies the Derridean deconstructivist model of the 'signature effect' to an intellectual biography of a Constructivist artist. Inhabiting the borderline between life and work, the book demonstrates how the signature inscribed by 'Moholy' operates in a double space, interweaving signified object and signifying matter, autobiography and auto-graphy. Through interpretive readings of over twenty key artistic and photographic works, Kaplan graphically illustrates Moholy's signature effect in action."--the publisher.
