Description
 
Moholy-Nagy made two documentary films in London that further illustrate his biologically-inspired design program. The first was commissioned by a London documentary film company and released in 1936 as Lobsters. The second was a fifteen-minute silent film commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, The New Architecture and the London Zoo (1936). It is an attempt to show the spacial relationships within a set of avant-garde buildings designed by Berthold Lubetkin, and fits well with Moholy-Nagy’s project of documentation of different biological experiences of space in the human and animal world.
