Nota a catalogo

In an enlarged 40 x 30 cm format, this photogram is one of the ten subjects from what is known as the 'Giedion portfolio', produced around 1929. The aim was to publish these in a limited edition of twenty, but it remains uncertain whether the complete edition was ever achieved.

The whereabouts of the original is unknown. A spiral shaped object may have been used, as it is achieving a three-dimensional spatial effect. Working with such three-dimensional paper shapes is something Moholy-Nagy took up again in later work phases.

The only complete set is now in the Kupferstichkabinett of the Kunstmuseum Basel, whilst other copies of this photogram can be found in the possession of the collections of  the Museum für Gestaltung, Zurich, Kunsthalle Mannheim, the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Sylvio Perlstein and the Cruz Collection, New York
