In this short film, artists and commentators discuss the impact of Albers and Moholy-Nagy on contemporary art and design. Artists Daniel Sturgis and Michael Craig-Martin describe the importance of Albers’s groundbreaking explorations of form and colour, while design commentator Alice Rawsthorn and photographer Idris Khan talk about Moholy-Nagy’s obsession with light, and his enormous influence on twentieth-century design and photography.
