Hajo Rose @ Bauhaus
Hajo Rose - Bauhaus Foto Typo focuses primarily on the Hajo Rose’s time at Bauhaus as well as his period in exile in Holland during the Second World War. Primarily remembered as a graphic designer and exhibition stand designer, Hajo Rose was also a highly talented photographer and drawer. Although Hajo Rose studied at Bauhaus Dessau and Berlin under Walter Peterhans, Josef Albers and Joost Schmidt, one of the greatest influences on his work was without question Laszlo Moholy-Nagy.
Not only was Moholy-Nagy instrumental in the development of the photography department in Dessau, but as the leading light in the typography department he also influenced Rose’s master Joost Schmidt. In addition, following the dissolution of Bauhaus in 1933 Hajo Rose briefly worked as am assistant for Moholy-Nagy in Berlin.
