MOHOLY-NAGY, Laszlo (ed.)
In 1936 the first and only issue of the magazine telehor (Greek for “tele-vision”) was released in four languages (Czech, German, English, French), as a special edition on and by László Moholy-Nagy.
This facsimile reprint makes the magazine accessible again in terms of its artistic and theoretical-historical dimensions. Particular attention has been paid to the production process: thus the volume appears spiral-bound, an ultramodern technique in the mid-1930s.
It is accompanied by a commentary volume, with an editorial statement that places the magazine, telehor, in the context of the art and media of the 1920s and 1930s and unlocks the position of the artistic avant-garde at the intersection of two epochs. It also contains new translations of the original texts: in Mandarin, Russian, Hungarian and Spanish.
