Photographer, writer and intellectual, Lucia Moholy (born Lucia Schulz, Karolinenthal, Prague, 1894 - Zollikon, Zurich, 1989) is a central figure in the 20th century history of photography, although the fame of her husband, the renowned artist László Moholy-Nagy, overshadowed her work for a long time.
Through her photographs, an exemple of the German avant-garde and of the Neue Sachlichkeit, it is possible to understand the complexity of her artistic personality and to reconstruct the role she played in the cultural history of the past century.
