The Craft of Composition through Bauhaus Lenses
A PH21 Academy workshop with Borbála Jász


Join our workshop to learn about composition in photography. If you aspire to consistently utilize compositional and formative elements akin to classical grandmasters, such as László Moholy-Nagy, come and explore the realm of the Bauhaus through a PH21 Academy workshop. Whether you're an emerging photographer or a seasoned professional, this workshop offers an enriching experience to take your composing skills to new heights!

The iconic Bauhaus school of the 20th-century modernist movement needs no introduction. Its pedagogical model is still employed in art and design education to this day. It revitalised interdisciplinary thinking in the fields of arts, and last but not least, its method of composition construction remains an essential foundation of creativity in photography and other visual arts.


In this workshop, we examine the participants’ works from the perspective of how they utilise artistic compositional aspects and form-creating factors in their photography. Naturally, previously created individual images and photography series can also be explored for further creative development. Participants learn from emblematic texts and the visual content of the Bauhaus, as well as through critical discussions of their own work and the work of others.

  • Exploring the visual and intellectual legacy of the Bauhaus

  • Creative composition techniques
