Friedrich Kiesler: Architect, Artist, Visionary
– 11 June 2017
Born in western Ukraine, he spent the first years of his life in Europe and graduated from the Technical College and the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, before emigrating to the USA in 1926. There, in 1937, he accepted a teaching position at Columbia University where he intensively studied the holistic theory of Correalism. To this day, his design theories are considered to be among the great visionary ideas of the 20th century. “Friedrich Kiesler: Architect, Artist, Visionary” presents his multifaceted work for the first time in Germany. The exhibited projects outline his field of influence as well as his importance for the history of architecture and art. Kiesler’s sculptural works such as the walk-through sculptures “Bucephalus” and “Endless House”, barely known today, can be experienced in the exhibition as an essential part of his oeuvre.
The exhibition is open from Wednesday to Monday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The standard admission fee is 10 Euros. Individual tickets can be ordered online in advance.
