Biographical notes:

Marianne Brandt (1893-1983) enrolled in the Bauhaus in 1924 where she was the first woman to study in the metal workshop. She succeeded her teacher, László Moholy-Nagy, as the workshop's director in 1928. After leaving the Bauhaus in 1929, she worked for a brief period in Walter Gropius's firm before becoming head of the applied arts design division at the Ruppelwerke metalwork factory, a position she held until 1932 when the collapse of the German economy caused her to return to her hometown of Chemnitz. As a photographer Brandt produced documentary and experimental work and photomontages.
