12 Shelves

The Aram Gallery, London / GB
– 19.01.2019
thearamgallery.org 

You cannot ignore a shelf – that could well be the message of this independently curated exhibition at The Aram Gallery. Young designers, selected for their joy of experimentation, exhibit finished shelves and prototypes. A shelf can be freestanding or hung on its own – the exhibition undoubtedly proves that. However, this type of furniture stands out because it invites the user to individually fill the furniture in order to fulfil its purpose and completeness. The exhibition does not claim to provide a comprehensive overview of the current shelf landscape. Rather, it is about giving new impulses an adequate framework and showing that a shelf can be much more than a mere storage solution.

Christien Meindertsma. Beyond the Surface

Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein / DE
– 20.01.2019
design-museum.de 

“Christien Meindertsma. Beyond the Surface” is the first international solo exhibition by the Dutch designer Christien Meindertsma. She is particularly interested in industrial production and design work processes which is why not only finished products, but also prototypes, photographs, and material samples are on display. She herself describes her work as “Documentary Design” – a creative process in which every work step is documented, and in which not only the finished product but the whole production process plays a part. On display are projects such as “One Sheep Sweater” from 2010, in which she made a jumper from the wool of a single sheep, and “Flax Chair” from 2015, a piece of furniture made from the sustainable material of flax, for which she has already received two design awards.

Triennale Design Museum Stories. Italian Design

La Triennale di Milano, Milan / IT
– 20.01.2019
triennale.org 

The Triennale Design Museum’s 2018 annual exhibition looks at the rich history of Italian design from a variety of perspectives: geography, politics, economics, technology, and communications. The exhibition covers topics such as the influence of politics and design on each other or the portrayal and dissemination of design by the media. The total of 180 exhibited works are arranged chronologically and divided into five sections, from 1902 to 1998.

The Moon

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk / DE
– 20.01.2019
louisiana.dk 

The moon is our planet’s nearest neighbour, and since time immemorial, it has played an important part in art, culture, and science. 50 years after the first human set foot on its surface, this exhibition devotes itself to various aspects of this celestial body. Under consideration are moonlight as a stylistic element in painting, the myths that entwine around the moon, the colonisation of space by mankind, and the age of the so-called Anthropocene. More than 200 objects from the fields of art, film, music, literature, architecture, cultural history, design, and the natural sciences are used to trace man’s interaction with the moon over the centuries.

Objectivity. The Art of Useful Things

Kunsthal Rotterdam / NL
– 20.01.2019
kunsthal.nl 

Ever since his childhood, David Usborne, who studied architecture and later taught design at Kingston University in London, has had a passion for collecting objects. In particular, at flea markets he found objects which, as a result of the constant development of the industry, were superseded by new products and therefore have become redundant. In 2015, at the age of 78, he bequeathed his entire collection to the University of the Arts London. The “Objectivity” exhibition now presents his collection as a cabinet of curiosities along a 20-metre wall, the display on which is constantly changing. The form and aesthetics of the exhibits in some places remind us of past times, others seem like art objects, and of others the viewer inevitably asks himself what their original function was.

Plot in Plastilin

MUDAC, Lausanne / CH
– 20.01.2019
mudac.ch 

The idea of plasticine evokes inescapable memories of childhood for most people. But apart from using it for play and modelling, this colourful material plays another important role: designers and artists continue to use it as a raw material for animation films, models, plastics, and illustrative representations in spite of having new digital alternatives. “Plot in Plastilin” follows the history of plasticine from the 1950s to the present day. Amongst the exhibits are clips showing well-known representatives of this art form, including “Shaun the Sheep” and “Pingu”, as well as experimental filmic works, music videos, objects, installations, and models from the context of product design. With this combination, there is something to intrigue everyone from professional designers to schoolchildren.

Ralf Ziervogel – As If

Sammlung Falckenberg, Hamburg-Harburg / DE
– 27.01.2019
deichtorhallen.de 

Born in 1975, the artist Ralf Ziervogel quickly acquired international fame after his studies at the Berlin University of the Arts. His work mainly revolves around human bodies, which intertwine to produce monochrome, filigree, and dynamic drawings. The artist depicts the bodies in a drastic way, deformed, tortured or ecstatically distorted. In another series, which he began in 2014, he combines blurred body prints in black gouache with a layer of handwritten text. The exhibition in the Falckenberg Collection is the largest solo exhibition of the Berlin-based artist to date and, in addition to his graphic works, presents installations, sculptures, and videos. Apart from the first Sunday of each month, visitors are required to register in advance.

Fashioned from Nature

Victoria and Albert Museum, London / GB
– 27.01.2019
vam.ac.uk 

Since the beginning of mankind, nature has been the source of inspiration and production for clothing and fashion. Prints, cuts and materials are inspired by nature, which are particularly striking in an historical context. For example, the lavishly decorated, floral dresses of the 19th century are presented in the exhibition, shown as they develop through the ages. Visitors to the exhibition are encouraged to think about the fabrics of fashion and the origins of their clothing. Through industrialisation – mass production and increasing levels of consumerism – a new sustainable awareness developed amongst fashion designers and customers and forms the primary focus of “Fashioned from Nature”. Within the concept of sustainability, the exhibition looks at different types of ecologically aware usage of resources and manufacturing methods, consumption and inequalities in general. As a result, in the fashion industry, there is a lot of potential for innovation that is presented in the Victoria and Albert Museum in an informative manner.

Peter Barber: 100 Mile City and Other Stories

The Design Museum, London / DE
– 27.01.2019
designmuseum.org 

Just as in many metropolises and conurbations around the world, there is also an acute housing shortage in the United Kingdom – and especially in London. Homelessness and displacement on the one hand and vacancy on the other are the consequences of the booming property market. At the same time, far too little new housing is being built for the population. The British architect Peter Barber has been tackling this problem for almost 30 years and tries to promote social housing through designs such as the 100 Mile City project and foster an urban environment which places people’s needs at its centre. This exhibition documents his work with models, drawings, and large-scale photographs. In addition, the display includes the film “The True History of the 100 Mile City” screened for the first time.

Anni Albers

Tate Modern, London / DE
– 27.01.2019
tate.org.uk 

The Tate Modern describes its eponymous Anni Albers exhibition as “a long overdue recognition of Anni Albers’s pivotal contribution to modern art and design”. During her training at the Bauhaus, the male-dominated leadership pushed Albers, like many other female students, into the textile workshop. Textiles became a medium that she adopted, developed further, used throughout her life as a multilayered form of expression and also whose theory and practice she taught at the Black Mountain College after emigrating to the US. Over 350 exhibits, including studies, wall hangings, jewellery, and textiles for the mass market, trace Anni Albers’s creative story.

Bijoux Bijoux! Modeschmuck von Chanel bis Dior

Kunstgewerbemuseum, Berlin / DE
– 27.01.2019
smb.museum 

For centuries, jewellery was regarded as a status symbol and a luxury product for the privileged society, but became accessible to the masses through “fake” materials and serial production. In the 1930s, Coco Chanel was the first designer to give costume jewellery a permanent place in her collections; today, jewellery is a fixture in almost all major fashion houses’ product ranges. The Kunstgewerbemuseum is now displaying around 500 objects dating from 1930 to 2007 from Gisela Wiegert’s private collection. The first part of the exhibition “Bijoux-Bijoux! Costume Jewellery from Chanel to Dior” is devoted to the interaction and dependence between jewellery and fashion, while the second part is structured in decades and has a particular focus on designs by Dior.

Human non Human

Powerhouse Museum, Sydney / AU
– 27.01.2019
maas.museum 

After two years of preparation, the question of what defines and constitutes humans has now resulted in an exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum. Various disciplines are taken into account, including architecture, design, and film as well as biotechnology, robotics, and chemistry. Each of the four artists dedicate himself to an elementary part of human life – food, work, sex, and belief – and implements his perspective and vision for the future in the form of installations. For example, Lindsay Kelley looks at the relationship between food and technology and the fear of impending food shortages using cakes made of ballistic gel and perforated by gun shots – a material that mimics the nature of the human body during military exercises, while Maria Fernanda Cardoso considers the beauty, seduction, and manipulative power of plants.

A Modern Life. Tablewares 1930s–1980s

National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne / AU
– 27.01.2019
ngv.au 

The exhibition “A Modern Life” focuses on ceramic tableware illustrative of 20th-century modern lifestyles in shape and colour as well as in terms of how they were marketed. Growing economic power and greater prosperity led to an increasing desire for aesthetic and affordable objects that were both visually appealing and practical. The role of designers also changed: they began to work closely with manufacturers, created diverse products of various material and gave the buyer a say in the working process.

Social Design

Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, Zurich / CH
– 03.02.2019
museum-gestaltung.ch 

The world is facing a multitude of challenges that affect us humans, the environment, and our interaction. Various selected projects by international designers and initiatives show the contribution that design can make, for example in the context of housing and urban development, in supporting business start-ups, integrating refugees, promoting culture and education, and maintaining biological diversity. The exhibition “Social Design” aims not only to give an overview of existing approaches, but also wishes to encourage a deeper examination of the topic with workshops, excursions, and talks and to act as an incentive for people to become involved themselves. The results of visitor interactions will be published on the museum’s website during the course of the show with the aim of constantly expanding the exhibition.

In Spotlight: Bags

Deutsches Ledermuseum, Offenbach / DE
– 03.02.2019
ledermuseum.de 

“Functional, decorative, fashionable” are the buzzwords for the bags selected to give insights into the historical archive as part of the studio format of the Deutsches Ledermuseum’s “Im Fokus” exhibition. The museum is proud of its extensive collection of over 30,000 artefacts drawn from many epochs and regions of leather culture on show in Offenbach/Main in a particularly international light. An historical summary of bag culture with exhibits from several eras is on offer in the “Im Fokus: Taschen. Funktional, schmückend, modisch” [In Spotlight: Bags. Functional, Decorative, Fashionable] exhibition. At the beginning of its existence, the bag was used in a purely functional way – as a container – to transport raw materials and foodstuff. In the Middle Ages, leather pouches and belt bags were developed which were worn mainly by men. Further developments and modifications of the functions and subcategories of bags were strongly marked by fashionable influences, from which today’s models such as briefcases, sports bags, shoulder bags and clutches evolved.

arts.ac.uk 

Central Saint Martins at the University of Arts London is showcasing Caroline Broadhead’s work from four decades in the field of fine and applied arts. Using three-dimensional objects in the form of jewellery, textiles and furniture, Broadhead questions the conventions and limits of design, especially with regard to the human body.

Tutto Ponti, Gio Ponti Archi-Designer

Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris / FR
– 10.02.2019
madparis.fr 

Primarily, Gio Ponti (1891–1979) left his mark on modern architecture in Italy, but he was also involved in international projects. His work with colours, surfaces, and fine structures ranged from the design of buildings to interior design and product and furniture design, earning him the moniker of “archi-designer” in the exhibition’s title. By co-founding the magazine Domus and teaching at the Politecnico di Milano, he ensured that his ideas reached a wide audience. This exhibition chronologically follows the six decades of his work, and is also organised according to discipline. Amongst the exhibits on show are drawings, models, photographs, and films. “Tutto Ponti” is also intended to raise awareness in France for the importance of Gio Ponti’s standing in architectural and design history.

Lace and Status

Textilmuseum, St. Gallen / CH
– 10.02.2019
textilmuseum.ch 

The textile museum in St. Gallen, one of Switzerland’s still remaining textile centres, is exhibiting its collection of historical lace in “Lace and Status” until February 2019. The history of lace is related and follows the developments of its techniques and courtly fashions from the beginning of the 15th to the end of the 18th century. Lace is a patterned textile made of yarn, or yarn and fabric and is distinguished by its openwork. The technique was developed mainly by women who made the lace at home.  Starting in Italy, it soon influenced the clothing of all the upper classes in Europe. This not only gave it importance in economic terms but also on a sociocultural level.

Human Interior – Thijs Wolzak

Design Museum Den Bosch, ’s-Hertogenbosch / NL
– 17.02.2019
designmuseum.nl 

Our own homes are an intimate place and often mirror the characters who live in it. Between 2011 and 2018, photographer Thijs Wolzak documented Dutch people living within their own four walls in a total of 248 images. The series appeared weekly in the NRC Handelsblad newspaper as part of the column Binnenkijken [Look Insight]. Now, the Design Museum Den Bosch is showing 23 selected large-format motifs, so that the details are shown to their best effect. Wolzak’s work raises questions that design regularly tackles: What are the motifs behind the product selection? What role is played by collecting objects? What is the social relevance of design? Why do people have the need to individualise their homes and build “nests”?

Stühle der Macht

Vitra Schaudepot, Weil/Rhine / DE
– 17.02.2019
design-museum.de 

Nowadays, chairs are taken for granted as everyday objects, and it is hard to imagine that their function was originally reserved for ancient rulers as thrones. Nevertheless, even in the recent past, the design and use of chairs still reveal power structures and hierarchies – whether in companies, in politics or in a religious context. However, as an alternative to the demonstration of superiority, attempts have repeatedly been made in seating to express modesty, closeness to the people or social involvement. In this context, the exhibition “Seats of Power” leads visitors through the history of the chair and, in the form of photographs, also shows iconic interiors and contemporary spaces of power, including the FIFA congress hall in Zurich and the New York headquarters of the United Nations General Assembly.

Schön Schräg

Czech Centre, Berlin / DE
– 21.02.2019
berlin.czechcentres.cz 

To mark 100 years since the foundation of the Czechoslovak Republic, the exhibition in Berlin, “Schön schräg. Cubism – A Czech Design Principle”, showcases modern product design from the Czech Republic and Slovakia and its genesis from Cubism to the present day. The two curators, Wolfgang Binder and Bettina Güldner from Berlin, were commissioned to research the distinguishing characteristics of design in the Czech Republic and Slovakia in comparison to other European countries. In addition to the exhibition, in January and February 2019 there will be a discussion round and a workshop in Prague where design students will have the opportunity to contribute their ideas on the subject.

All I Know Is What’s on the Internet

The Photographers’ Gallery, London / GB
– 24.02.2019
thephotographersgallery.org.uk 

The medium of photography and the photographer’s profession have experienced radical changes as a result of technological progress, global networks, and social platforms. Where previously a manageable number of images was produced, users are now confronted with a visual flood. Bots, algorithms, intelligent machines, and above all a huge number of employees in large companies are involved in producing and distributing these images. This exhibition takes a look behind the shiny surface of our screens and explores the work of these very actors. Using artistic confrontations with the subject matter, the exhibition provokes, questions, and explores how image culture works today and examines where the borderline runs between input by humans and machines.

Kinderbiennale – Träume und Geschichten

Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Japanisches Palais, Dresden / DE
– 24.02.2019
skd.museum 

[Children’s Biennale – Dreams and Stories] “Works of art have the inner power to give shape to dreams, to tell stories, and to reflect the world around us in all its facets.” Based on this premise, the Kinderbiennale abandons the usual forms of conveying and reception in a museum context and creates an environment that is intended to make art tangible instead. The Japanisches Palais in Dresden is thus transformed into a place that stimulates interaction, appeals to all senses, and invites visitors to explore both real and fictitious worlds through works of art. In addition, for this occasion, the so-called mobile museum will be presented to the public for the first time. It will travel through Saxony with the aim of bringing art and culture closer to children and families.

Museum of Applied Arts Cologne / DE
– 24.02.2019
museenkoeln.de 

The exhibition “100 Years of Adjustable Light” traces the history of flexible lighting. What is now an indispensable part of working and living spaces began its design history with Curt Fischer’s designs for the Midgard company he founded, and whose products are at the centre of the exhibition. The exhibition traces their influence on the Bauhaus and contemporary designers through original lamps, patents, letters, drawings, and films.

Lily van der Stokker. Friendly Good

Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam / NL
– 24.02.2019
stedelijk.nl 

Using friendly, playful aesthetics in her (wall) paintings and installations, the Dutch artist Lily van der Stokker addresses a range of questions about social attitudes and perceptions of the feminine. The Stedelijk Museum is currently hosting van der Stokker’s most comprehensive show to date. Van der Stokker celebrates particular elements of femininity and challenges common notions of conceptual art with the character of her works, which are often declared to be emotional and typically feminine.

Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt

Victoria and Albert Museum, London / GB
– 24.02.2019
vam.ac.uk 

With at least 2.2 billion active gamers around the world, it is hardly a surprise that the Victoria and Albert Museum is making an effort to devote more attention to the gaming culture. Another step in this direction is taken with the exhibition entitled “Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt” which is primarily concerned with the developments that have taken place over the past decade. The design and technical implementation of games, their role as mediators of socially relevant topics, the creative potential of the gaming community, and the importance of smaller, independent studios are examined in various sections. In addition, a residency programme attached to the exhibition will give a British artist, designer or maker in the area of video games the chance to collaborate with the curators.

Anthropocene

National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa / CA
– 24.02.2019
gallery.ca 

The Gotthard Base Tunnel, the open-cast mine in North Rhine-Westphalia or the Dandora landfill in Nairobi are just a few visible examples of the pervasive impact of human activity on nature. As part of the large-scale undertaking The Anthropocene Project, this exhibition uses photography, murals and film installations to impressively demonstrate human impact on our planet.

Metahaven: Earth

Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam / NL
– 24.02.2019
stedelijk.nl 

Commissioned by the Stedelijk Museum together with the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London and the Sharjah Art Foundation, Metahaven’s new film, “Eurasia (Questions on Happiness)”, forms the core of the exhibition “Metahaven: Earth” at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. “Eurasia (Questions on Happiness)” is not the first film by Metahaven, the name for the two artists Vinca Kruk and Daniel van der Velden, whose joint practice has increasingly developed, since 2007, from graphic identities, spatial installations, and publications to moving images. For this reason, the video works created so far, including “The Sprawl” will be presented as immersive installations in four galleries, while their music videos, textile and graphic works will be shown in a fifth gallery.

Bodyscan – Anatomy in the Arts and Sciences

Eres-Stiftung, Munich / DE
– 02.03.2019
eres-stiftung.de 

The exhibition “Bodyscan – Anatomy in the Arts and Sciences” at the foundation Eres-Stiftung in Munich showcases perspectives on the human body from the Renaissance to the present day. With over 50 exhibits from the Renaissance and Baroque periods to contemporary art and the latest imaging techniques, the exhibition explores the question of how technical and artistic methods of representation shape our body images. Contributions from media as diverse as woodcut, sculpture, painting, photography, film, and computer animation make for a comprehensive contribution to the foundation’s mission of linking art and science.

Against Invisibility

Japanisches Palais, Dresden / DE
– 03.03.2019
kunstgewerbemuseum.skd.museum 

For the first time, the exhibition entitled “Against Invisibility – Women Designers at the Deutsche Werkstätten Hellerau 1898 to 1938” focuses exclusively on the women who worked at the Deutsche Werkstätten in the early 20th century. They worked in 27 areas of the design profession, including graphics, furniture, textile, and interiors. Despite their work in design and teaching as well as taking part in competitions and exhibitions successfully, they have been forgotten. This exhibition wants to counteract this by not only showing over 270 works, but also by looking at the trajectory of these women’s lives through letters, photographs, and testimonies.

Good Grief, Charlie Brown!

Somerset House, London / GB
– 03.03.2019
somersethouse.org.uk 

About 70 years ago, the first Peanuts picture story by Charles M. Schulz, the US American cartoonist, was published and, since then, the comic series has delighted millions of readers around the world and exerted a clear (and lasting) influence on art and culture. In the everyday adventures of a group of children featuring the notorious walking disaster area that is Charlie Brown, there are always more profound themes such as war, equality or racism. In addition, the characters with their individual fears, problems, and relationships offer many opportunities for identification. This exhibition now presents a mixture of historical originals from Schulze’s estate and objects inspired by the Peanuts – including the silver Snoopy, which NASA took on a journey to the moon and back – as well as contemporary artworks.

Feast for the Eyes

Foam Fotografiemuseum, Amsterdam / NL
– 03.03.2019
foam.org 

The permanent availability of smartphone cameras and social media such as Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat have ensured that food today no longer only means consuming nutrition, but also constitutes an important part of one’s public self-portrayal. “Feast for the Eyes” looks at the history of food photography and includes art and photojournalism as well as commercial and scientific photography. The section “Still Life” is dedicated to the classical representation of food in painting, “Around the Table” looks at cultural and ritual aspects and “Playing With Food” shows what happens when humour is added. In addition to the photographs themselves, there are also cookbooks on display that provide further historical overview.

Colour and Abstraction

Textielmuseum, Tilburg / NL
– 03.03.2019
textielmuseum.nl 

The period from ‚œ1960ƒ to the present day covers a broad spectrum with regard to textiles. On the basis of their work, two generations of designers and artists spanning half a century encounter one another in the exhibition entitled “Colour and Abstraction. Generations in Dialogue” in the Textielmuseum. The older generation who researches aspects such as colour and abstraction using textiles meets a younger generation who approaches these themes from more of a thematic point of view. The creative process is illustrated using film material, drawings, and patterns. Exhibits include work by Peter Struycken, Lam de Wolf, Bertjan Pot, Formafantasma, and Rafaël Rozendaal.

Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design

Vitra Design Museum, Weil/Rhine / DE
– 10.03.2019
design-museum.de 

Designed simultaneously as “a retrospective and a themed exhibition”, the Vitra Design Museum sheds light on the life and work, influence and visions of the industrial designer and author Victor Papanek, as well as on the relationship between design and complex, global problems in general. Above all, Papanek laid a foundation for critical, social, and ecological thinking and action in the field of design, particularly through publications such as “Design for the Real World” (1971) and “Design for Human Scale” (1983). A media installation based on his theses immerses the visitor in his thought processes. Also on display are objects from his estate that have never been shown before, such as notebooks, letters, furniture, and slides. 20 projects by contemporary designers who reflect and develop Papanek’s approaches build a bridge to the present day.

Hautnah. Die Filmkostüme von Barbara Baum

Deutsches Filmmuseum, Frankfurt/Main / DE
– 10.03.2019
deutsches-filminstitut.de 

[Up Close. Film Costumes by Barbara Baum] Barbara Baum is one of Germany’s most renowned costume designers and can look back on almost 50 years of collaboration with international directors and producers. Baum’s repertoire includes particularly elaborate, historical costumes for films such as “Catherine the Great” (1995) and “Buddenbrooks” (2008). Among other things, the exhibition documents the process of creation “from the first reading of the script to historical research and on to the initial sketches and the exciting moment of the first fitting with the actors”. In her work, the designer is guided above all by the choice of cloth. The exhibition uses the tactile qualities of this material, supplemented by audio material, and information in Braille, to offer also an experience to blind and visually impaired people.

Raphaela Vogel

Berlinische Galerie, Berlin / DE
– 11.03.2019
berlinischegalerie.de 

For ten years now, Videoart at Midnight, a screening of video art every month on a Friday, has been taking place at the Babylon cinema in Berlin. To mark this anniversary, the Berlinische Galerie is now dedicating a solo exhibition to video artist Raphaela Vogel (born 1988). Vogel graduated from the Städelschule in Frankfurt/Main in 2014 and now lives in Amsterdam. She always takes the leading role herself in her videos and exposes her body to observation by camera drones. Among other things, she deals with the conflict between femininity and “often male-defined technology”. In the context of the exhibition, the video projections are framed by peculiar objects, such as a Dixi urinal or a revolving crane. As a result, Vogel allows viewers to be immersed in her very own, seemingly post-apocalyptic world.

68. Pop und Protest

Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, Hamburg / DE
– 17.03.2019
mkg-hamburg.de 

The 1968 movement was a time in which people all around the world rebelled and began to fight back vociferously against existing structures using various cultural means, from music to fashion to cinema critical of society and a new interest in (public) discussions. They fought for freedom, peace, equal rights, and acceptance – values that are being discussed again today. The Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (MKG) has brought together 200 objects from its own collection and loans, including artworks, photographs, fashion, posters, and products to illustrate the mood of this period. The Spiegel canteen, finalised by Verner Panton for Spiegel publishing house in 1969 and transferred to the MKG in 2012, forms the centrepiece of the exhibition.

Times of Waste − Was übrig bleibt

Gewerbemuseum Winterthur, Winterthur / CH
– 17.03.2019
gewerbemuseum.ch 

“Waste may be a promising resource or an unavoidable residue. Waste is political and social, but above all unavoidable. Waste never disappears completely and always leaves a footprint,” says the introduction to the “Times of Waste – The Residue” exhibition. In order to trace the path taken by waste, the exhibition follows a smartphone, tracking its route as it is transported and recycled. This everyday object takes the visitor to very different places, including landfill sites, research laboratories, and repair workshops, and meets the people there. The questions and problems that are brought up in this way demand new solutions and a deeper engagement with the topic. The exhibition has been devised in conjunction with a research project carried out at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basle.

In a retrospective, the Designmuseo in Helsinki looks at the work of designer and architect Josef Frank (1885–1967). After studying and obtaining his doctorate in Vienna, teaching at the city’s School of Arts and Crafts and co-founding the Vienna Werkbund, he fled to Sweden to escape the Nazis. There, he became famous for his furniture and textile designs, amongst others for Svenskt Tenn. In addition, his aim was to have a positive influence on people’s lives through design, architecture, and urban planning. The show examines his principles and visions using numerous exhibits, which come from collections in Sweden and Austria.

65+ Design History and Stories. The Institute for New Technical Form

Institut für Neue Technische Form, Darmstadt / DE
– 17.03.2019
institut-fuer-neue-technische-form.de 

On 18 November 2018 at 12 noon, an exhibition taking stock of 65 years of design will open at 11 Friedensplatz in Darmstadt. That is how long INTEF, as it is commonly known, has existed. In the heart of the city, it wants to offer a showcase for the world of products from art nouveau to the present day and thus promote and present design independently and confidently. If you consider that the 65 exhibition stations are but a glimpse into the history of INTEF’s work, and you also take into account that the Schneider Collection, available to INTEF, is so extensive that the materials could furnish several design museums, and finally also that there are still numerous archives and warehouses full of stuff, then you can only hope that this exhibition won’t just take stock, but will actually mark a turning point for Darmstadt’s design and exhibition policy.

Together! The New Architecture of the Collective

Grassi Museum for Applied Arts, Leipzig / DE
– 17.03.2019
grassimuseum.de 

The problem of affordable and liveable housing is becoming increasingly acute, especially in cities, where rents are rising. Previous housing construction projects have only partially addressed the situation. The exhibition “Together! The New Architecture of the Collective” presents solutions against a background of historical and contemporary projects on collective living. With an approach akin to research, the exhibition reflects the human need for community, while acknowledging the importance of privacy.

Downtown Denise Scott Brown

Architekturzentrum Wien, Vienna / AT
– 18.03.2019
azw.at 

The Architekturzentrum Wien is dedicating the first comprehensive retrospective to Denise Scott Brown, an urban planner, architect, teacher, and author born in 1931 whose work has only just been rediscovered. Scott Brown has had a great influence on architecture from the 1960s, both practically and theoretically, but great appreciation for their joint work was attributed mainly to her partner and husband, Robert Venturi. With photographic documentation as well as architectural and urban planning projects on all five continents, the designer advocated an undogmatic formal language and targeted interventions in existing structures. The exhibition includes objects, photographs, plans, collages, quotations, and videos and is itself designed as a kind of urban setting.

Playing with Scale:
 How Designers Use Set Models

Olivier Theatre, Wolfson Gallery, London / GB
– 23.03.2019
nationaltheatre.org.uk 

Taking the Jocelyn Herbert Archive as a starting point, the exhibition “Playing with Scale” presents five sets from the National Theatre London. Jocelyn Herbert (1917–2003) is a stage designer known for her laconic, but also atmospherically dense style. Two current productions by the stage designers Anthony Ward (“Exit the King”) and Hildegard Bechtler (“Antony & Cleopatra”) will also be in the spotlight. According to exhibition curator Eleanor Margolies, the exhibition also focuses on how stage sets can function as an “exquisite miniature world” in the preliminary rehearsal process, and as a starting point for a creative and democratic exchange between the various actors and trades involved in the production. The exhibits include built models as well as first sketch attempts and everything up to and including 3D models.

Andy Warhol. Pop Goes Art

Museum für Angewandte Kunst Köln / DE
– 24.03.2019
museenkoeln.de 

For the first time, the exhibition “Andy Warhol. Pop Goes Art” is showing almost all of the album covers designed by Andy Warhol, together with the myriad sketches and designs that he did for them. The exhibits also include a range of films and audio clips that contribute to a comprehensive showcasing of the interplay between art and music. Warhol (1928–1987) worked with the medium of records from 1949 onwards, first as a commercial artist mainly designing the covers of jazz LPs, before moving on to design overall concepts for album covers in a range of genres in the 1960s, including “Sticky Fingers” (1971) by The Rolling Stones and the eponymous debut album by The Velvet Underground (1967).

Home Futures

The Design Museum, London / GB
– 24.03.2019
designmuseum.org 

The question of how we will live in the future has occupied designers down the ages. But what happens to these visions when the future has been reached from that earlier point of view? The “Home Futures” exhibition displays futuristic designs from the 20th century created by designers such as Ettore Sottsass, Joe Colombo, Superstudio, and Enzo Mari and juxtaposes them with current developments. Scenarios and questions – relevant back then and now – are divided into subject areas and approaches to solutions are presented, such as living in limited space, modern nomadism, minimalism, and smart homes. The exhibition was created in co-operation with the IKEA Museum in Älmhult, Sweden and will also be on show there after it closes in London.

Digital Imaginaries. Africas in Production

ZKM, Karlsruhe / DE
– 31.03.2019
zkm.de 

The topics of digitisation and digital transformation are major drivers for companies, governments, and societies worldwide. Following exhibitions, workshops, and events in Senegal and South Africa, the exhibition and research project “Digital Imaginaries” is currently showcasing contemporary works by African artists in Karlsruhe that address the “contradictory diversity of digital phenomena in African”. The works shown in the exhibition point to the African stories, practices, and realities that come to bear in this context and aim to inspire reflection on what an emancipated digital future can look like without necessarily conforming to market-oriented interests and post-colonial hegemony.

Sagmeister and Walsh. Beauty

MAK, Vienna / AT
– 31.03.2019
mak.at 

With a large-scale, interactive exhibition, Stefan Sagmeister – this time together with Jessica Walsh – is now dedicating himself after happiness to another grand theme of human culture: beauty. To prove that beauty is more than pure superficiality, various installations and objects invite visitors to examine the different facets of this concept: from digital experiments on symmetry to experiencing sound, colour, and scent through the senses to the question of what makes one person attractive to another. The topic areas, “What Is Beauty?”, “The History of Beauty”, “In the Eye of the Beholder”, “Experience Beauty”, and “Transforming Beauty” will be rounded off by “The Beauty Archive” curated by Sagmeister and Walsh, presenting a selection of “particularly beautiful” exhibits from the museum’s collection.

Back Side – Fashion from Behind

Fashion and Lace Museum, Brussels / BE
– 31.03.2019
fashionandlacemuseum.brussels 

Our back makes up a large area of our body – and yet it still eludes our own field of vision and often our consciousness. The exhibition “Back Side – Fashion from Behind” has assembled 70 creations that show how fashion design has dealt with the back in different ways. Whether as a sassy revealing, a place for statements and motifs, silhouettes forming lacing or straps for heavy loads, the back can set the scene and be used and interpreted in many ways. With works by labels and designers such as Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Raf Simons, and Balmain, the show provides an overview of this potential for creativity from the 18th century to the present day.

Frankfurt Modernism. 1919–1933

Museum Angewandte Kunst, Frankfurt/Main / DE
– 14.04.2019
museumangewandtekunst.de 

The exhibition “Frankfurt Modernism” showcases artefacts from Frankfurt during the Weimar Republic, and is the first attempt to comprehensively reappraise this epoch in terms of design history – approaching the claim of that time of designing the city anew both aesthetically and socially. Given the 600 or so exhibits that have been announced, we should be prepared to see all sorts of things.

Programmed: Rules, Codes, and Choreographies in Art, 1965–2018

Whitney Museum of American Art, New York / UM
– 14.04.2019
whitney.org 

Nowadays, programmed systems are an everyday thing for us, but their influence on art can be traced back to the 1960s. This exhibition is divided into two sections: “Rule, Instruction, Algorithm” deals with the question of how images and objects can be generated based on systems and specifications; “Signal, Sequence, Resolution” focuses on works that manipulate (television) images using code. One highlight is the work “Fin de Siècle II” by Nam June Paik presented between the two areas, which is on public display again for the first time after six years of restoration work. Also, the augmented reality artwork “Unexpected Growth” by Tamiko Thiel simulating the flooding of New York, will celebrate its premiere here.

West of Modernism: California Graphic Design, 1975–1995

LACMA, Los Angeles / US
– 21.04.2019
lacma.org 

For many generations, California has been a place of aspiration and a symbol of freedom, liberality, and individual development. This was also true of graphic design in the second half of the 20th century. During this period, many designers increasingly emancipated themselves from the generally valid and rigid rules of modernism, which were upheld primarily by the established scene in New York. Spurred on further by the new opportunities offered by rapidly advancing technological progress, the West Coast forged its own path, both in practice and theory. As part of its Graphic Design Initiative, which aims to gradually build up a comprehensive graphic design collection, the LACMA sheds light on the period between 1975 and 1995 by means of posters and publications.

Koloman Moser

MAK, Vienna / AT
– 22.04.2019
mak.at 

Almost no one other than Koloman Moser (1868–1918) lived up to the ideal of the universal artist held in high esteem by the Vienna Secession; his work extends from painting to the design of furniture, objects, and interiors to stage design and fashion. This retrospective to mark the centenary of his death looks at his extensive oeuvre in chronological order and, at the same time, includes those who blazed a trail and accompanied him on his path. Arranged in stages of his life, beginning with Vienna as a source of inspiration and concluding with Moser’s final return to painting, the “Koloman Moser. Universal Artist between Gustav Klimt and Josef Hoffmann” exhibition presents 600 exhibits, many of which have previously never been accessible to the public.

Einfach gut. Design aus Dänemark

Wilhelm Wagenfeld Haus, Bremen / DE
– 22.04.2019
wilhelm-wagenfeld-stiftung.de 

[Simply Good. Design from Denmark] When it comes to Danish design, most people probably think of wellknown mid-century classics. This exhibition wants to prove that this country has much more to offer. Although the exhibits include furniture and lighting by Finn Juhl, Verner Panton, and Nanna Ditzel, these are complemented by new interpretations of craftsmanship and projects that see design as a tool for tackling major global problems. As a result, the curators want to leave behind the purely nostalgic perspective and raise questions about sustainability, social perception, and the image of Danish design. The exhibition was shown in Berlin back in 2017 and has been extended and adapted for the Wilhelm Wagenfeld Haus.

Cultural Threads

Textiel Museum, Tilburg / NL
– 12.05.2019
textielmuseum.nl 

In the exhibition “Cultural Threads”, textiles serve as mediators and witnesses of sociopolitical connections in a world whose boundaries are becoming increasingly blurred. Stories are discovered and told, relationships are revealed, identities are shaped, and perspectives for the future are opened up. In addition to works by international textile artists such as Hana Miletić, Otobong Nkanga, Aiko Tezuka, and Mary Sibande, new works have been created especially for the exhibition in the Textiel Lab. Eylem Aladogan, for example, uses textiles from the Ottoman Empire to examine her Turkish origins and the political situation there under Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, while Vincent Vulsma, using sculptures, tackles the historical role of fabrics and indigo in the slave trade.

smb.museum 

5 November 2017 saw the opening of the special exhibition of the Museum Europäischer Kulturen in Berlin: it is about wool. The interdisciplinary exhibition aims to explore the origin, processing and cultural background of wool, and to appeal to all age groups, while encouraging visitors to play and participate. The exhibition aims to provide a comprehensive picture that sheds light on manufacturing processes, shepherd’s lives and shearing, combing and washing, as well as processing into yarns, textiles, and building materials. This highlights the theme of cultural roots in an age where we see so many losses of traditions.

Like you! Freundschaft digital und analog

Museum für Kommunikation Frankfurt / DE
– 01.09.2019
mfk-frankfurt.de 

As studies have shown many times, having friends is a basic human need, because loneliness makes you ill (↗ form 280, p. 70). The exhibition “Like You! Friendship – Digital and Analogue” asks what constitutes friendship and, above all, what changes digital media and means of communication are causing in this respect. Arranged into sections entitled “Making Friends”, “Having Friends”, and “Losing Friends” this special kind of interpersonal relationship is examined throughout all eras. The “discovery table” then offers the possibility of interacting and exchanging information with one another, either analogously or digitally, from using messages sent by note to those sent by robots. The supporting programme of guided tours, discussions, workshops, and film screenings is aimed at both adults and children.

Shine on Me. Wir und die Sonne

Deutsches Hygiene-Museum, Dresden / DE
– 18.09.2019
dhmd.de 

The sun enables and influences life on earth like nothing else. It is the energy source, rhythm generator, and centre of our planetary system – and has not yet been completely researched, not by far. No wonder, therefore, that mankind has always had a special relationship with this star. The “Shine on Me. The Sun and Us” exhibition is dedicated to the sun and the many facets of its scientific and cultural significance. Divided into seven areas, its role is examined as a deity, timer, symbol, emitter of light, health factor, energy source, and star. From ancient rituals to modern technology, this covers a broad spectrum of human history. The topic is made more accessible to both children and adults with an accompanying programme of lectures, discussions, readings, and guided tours.

Politics of Design, Design of Politics

Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum, Munich / DE
– 29.09.2019
dnstdm.de 

With the exhibition “Friedrich von Borries. Politics of Design – Design of Politics”, the Neue Sammlung continues its exhibition series on contemporary positions in design, launched in 2015, and now in its fourth year. Under the conceptual direction of Friedrich von Borries, the exhibition breaks down museum boundaries in the permanent collection and combines museum pieces with DIY objects contributed by participants in an open call. The heart of the exhibition is its aim to question the interaction between design and politics: To what extent are design objects products of political dynamics? How can design contribute to changing these dynamics? These questions will be discussed in the context of the exhibition in workshops with representatives from politics, science, and culture.

At the Werkbundarchiv – Museum der Dinge in Berlin there is a sequence of four exhibitions on show, the last of which runs until the beginning of next year. These exhibitions demonstrate the connections between the Deutscher Werkbund, founded in 1907, and the Bauhaus, founded in 1919, and also the influences on modernism emanating from the institutions. The first part in the series displays commercial graphics that illustrate the development from Art Nouveau to modernism.

Social Design

Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, Zurich / CH
– 03.02.2019
museum-gestaltung.ch 

The world is facing a multitude of challenges that affect us humans, the environment, and our interaction. Various selected projects by international designers and initiatives show the contribution that design can make, for example in the context of housing and urban development, in supporting business start-ups, integrating refugees, promoting culture and education, and maintaining biological diversity. The exhibition “Social Design” aims not only to give an overview of existing approaches, but also wishes to encourage a deeper examination of the topic with workshops, excursions, and talks and to act as an incentive for people to become involved themselves. The results of visitor interactions will be published on the museum’s website during the course of the show with the aim of constantly expanding the exhibition.

In Spotlight: Bags

Deutsches Ledermuseum, Offenbach / DE
– 03.02.2019
ledermuseum.de 

“Functional, decorative, fashionable” are the buzzwords for the bags selected to give insights into the historical archive as part of the studio format of the Deutsches Ledermuseum’s “Im Fokus” exhibition. The museum is proud of its extensive collection of over 30,000 artefacts drawn from many epochs and regions of leather culture on show in Offenbach/Main in a particularly international light. An historical summary of bag culture with exhibits from several eras is on offer in the “Im Fokus: Taschen. Funktional, schmückend, modisch” [In Spotlight: Bags. Functional, Decorative, Fashionable] exhibition. At the beginning of its existence, the bag was used in a purely functional way – as a container – to transport raw materials and foodstuff. In the Middle Ages, leather pouches and belt bags were developed which were worn mainly by men. Further developments and modifications of the functions and subcategories of bags were strongly marked by fashionable influences, from which today’s models such as briefcases, sports bags, shoulder bags and clutches evolved.

Tutto Ponti, Gio Ponti Archi-Designer

Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris / FR
– 10.02.2019
madparis.fr 

Primarily, Gio Ponti (1891–1979) left his mark on modern architecture in Italy, but he was also involved in international projects. His work with colours, surfaces, and fine structures ranged from the design of buildings to interior design and product and furniture design, earning him the moniker of “archi-designer” in the exhibition’s title. By co-founding the magazine Domus and teaching at the Politecnico di Milano, he ensured that his ideas reached a wide audience. This exhibition chronologically follows the six decades of his work, and is also organised according to discipline. Amongst the exhibits on show are drawings, models, photographs, and films. “Tutto Ponti” is also intended to raise awareness in France for the importance of Gio Ponti’s standing in architectural and design history.

Lace and Status

Textilmuseum, St. Gallen / CH
– 10.02.2019
textilmuseum.ch 

The textile museum in St. Gallen, one of Switzerland’s still remaining textile centres, is exhibiting its collection of historical lace in “Lace and Status” until February 2019. The history of lace is related and follows the developments of its techniques and courtly fashions from the beginning of the 15th to the end of the 18th century. Lace is a patterned textile made of yarn, or yarn and fabric and is distinguished by its openwork. The technique was developed mainly by women who made the lace at home.  Starting in Italy, it soon influenced the clothing of all the upper classes in Europe. This not only gave it importance in economic terms but also on a sociocultural level.

Stühle der Macht

Vitra Schaudepot, Weil/Rhine / DE
– 17.02.2019
design-museum.de 

Nowadays, chairs are taken for granted as everyday objects, and it is hard to imagine that their function was originally reserved for ancient rulers as thrones. Nevertheless, even in the recent past, the design and use of chairs still reveal power structures and hierarchies – whether in companies, in politics or in a religious context. However, as an alternative to the demonstration of superiority, attempts have repeatedly been made in seating to express modesty, closeness to the people or social involvement. In this context, the exhibition “Seats of Power” leads visitors through the history of the chair and, in the form of photographs, also shows iconic interiors and contemporary spaces of power, including the FIFA congress hall in Zurich and the New York headquarters of the United Nations General Assembly.

Human Interior – Thijs Wolzak

Design Museum Den Bosch, ’s-Hertogenbosch / NL
– 17.02.2019
designmuseum.nl 

Our own homes are an intimate place and often mirror the characters who live in it. Between 2011 and 2018, photographer Thijs Wolzak documented Dutch people living within their own four walls in a total of 248 images. The series appeared weekly in the NRC Handelsblad newspaper as part of the column Binnenkijken [Look Insight]. Now, the Design Museum Den Bosch is showing 23 selected large-format motifs, so that the details are shown to their best effect. Wolzak’s work raises questions that design regularly tackles: What are the motifs behind the product selection? What role is played by collecting objects? What is the social relevance of design? Why do people have the need to individualise their homes and build “nests”?

berlin.czechcentres.cz 

To mark 100 years since the foundation of the Czechoslovak Republic, the exhibition in Berlin, “Schön schräg. Cubism – A Czech Design Principle”, showcases modern product design from the Czech Republic and Slovakia and its genesis from Cubism to the present day. The two curators, Wolfgang Binder and Bettina Güldner from Berlin, were commissioned to research the distinguishing characteristics of design in the Czech Republic and Slovakia in comparison to other European countries. In addition to the exhibition, in January and February 2019 there will be a discussion round and a workshop in Prague where design students will have the opportunity to contribute their ideas on the subject.

All I Know Is What’s on the Internet

The Photographers’ Gallery, London / GB
– 24.02.2019
thephotographersgallery.org.uk 

The medium of photography and the photographer’s profession have experienced radical changes as a result of technological progress, global networks, and social platforms. Where previously a manageable number of images was produced, users are now confronted with a visual flood. Bots, algorithms, intelligent machines, and above all a huge number of employees in large companies are involved in producing and distributing these images. This exhibition takes a look behind the shiny surface of our screens and explores the work of these very actors. Using artistic confrontations with the subject matter, the exhibition provokes, questions, and explores how image culture works today and examines where the borderline runs between input by humans and machines.

Kinderbiennale – Träume und Geschichten

Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Japanisches Palais, Dresden / DE
– 24.02.2019
skd.museum 

[Children’s Biennale – Dreams and Stories] “Works of art have the inner power to give shape to dreams, to tell stories, and to reflect the world around us in all its facets.” Based on this premise, the Kinderbiennale abandons the usual forms of conveying and reception in a museum context and creates an environment that is intended to make art tangible instead. The Japanisches Palais in Dresden is thus transformed into a place that stimulates interaction, appeals to all senses, and invites visitors to explore both real and fictitious worlds through works of art. In addition, for this occasion, the so-called mobile museum will be presented to the public for the first time. It will travel through Saxony with the aim of bringing art and culture closer to children and families.

The exhibition “100 Years of Adjustable Light” traces the history of flexible lighting. What is now an indispensable part of working and living spaces began its design history with Curt Fischer’s designs for the Midgard company he founded, and whose products are at the centre of the exhibition. The exhibition traces their influence on the Bauhaus and contemporary designers through original lamps, patents, letters, drawings, and films.

stedelijk.nl 

Commissioned by the Stedelijk Museum together with the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London and the Sharjah Art Foundation, Metahaven’s new film, “Eurasia (Questions on Happiness)”, forms the core of the exhibition “Metahaven: Earth” at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. “Eurasia (Questions on Happiness)” is not the first film by Metahaven, the name for the two artists Vinca Kruk and Daniel van der Velden, whose joint practice has increasingly developed, since 2007, from graphic identities, spatial installations, and publications to moving images. For this reason, the video works created so far, including “The Sprawl” will be presented as immersive installations in four galleries, while their music videos, textile and graphic works will be shown in a fifth gallery.

Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt

Victoria and Albert Museum, London / GB
– 24.02.2019
vam.ac.uk 

With at least 2.2 billion active gamers around the world, it is hardly a surprise that the Victoria and Albert Museum is making an effort to devote more attention to the gaming culture. Another step in this direction is taken with the exhibition entitled “Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt” which is primarily concerned with the developments that have taken place over the past decade. The design and technical implementation of games, their role as mediators of socially relevant topics, the creative potential of the gaming community, and the importance of smaller, independent studios are examined in various sections. In addition, a residency programme attached to the exhibition will give a British artist, designer or maker in the area of video games the chance to collaborate with the curators.

Good Grief, Charlie Brown!

Somerset House, London / GB
– 03.03.2019
somersethouse.org.uk 

About 70 years ago, the first Peanuts picture story by Charles M. Schulz, the US American cartoonist, was published and, since then, the comic series has delighted millions of readers around the world and exerted a clear (and lasting) influence on art and culture. In the everyday adventures of a group of children featuring the notorious walking disaster area that is Charlie Brown, there are always more profound themes such as war, equality or racism. In addition, the characters with their individual fears, problems, and relationships offer many opportunities for identification. This exhibition now presents a mixture of historical originals from Schulze’s estate and objects inspired by the Peanuts – including the silver Snoopy, which NASA took on a journey to the moon and back – as well as contemporary artworks.

Feast for the Eyes

Foam Fotografiemuseum, Amsterdam / NL
– 03.03.2019
foam.org 

The permanent availability of smartphone cameras and social media such as Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat have ensured that food today no longer only means consuming nutrition, but also constitutes an important part of one’s public self-portrayal. “Feast for the Eyes” looks at the history of food photography and includes art and photojournalism as well as commercial and scientific photography. The section “Still Life” is dedicated to the classical representation of food in painting, “Around the Table” looks at cultural and ritual aspects and “Playing With Food” shows what happens when humour is added. In addition to the photographs themselves, there are also cookbooks on display that provide further historical overview.

Against Invisibility

Japanisches Palais, Dresden / DE
– 03.03.2019
kunstgewerbemuseum.skd.museum 

For the first time, the exhibition entitled “Against Invisibility – Women Designers at the Deutsche Werkstätten Hellerau 1898 to 1938” focuses exclusively on the women who worked at the Deutsche Werkstätten in the early 20th century. They worked in 27 areas of the design profession, including graphics, furniture, textile, and interiors. Despite their work in design and teaching as well as taking part in competitions and exhibitions successfully, they have been forgotten. This exhibition wants to counteract this by not only showing over 270 works, but also by looking at the trajectory of these women’s lives through letters, photographs, and testimonies.

textielmuseum.nl 

The period from ‚œ1960ƒ to the present day covers a broad spectrum with regard to textiles. On the basis of their work, two generations of designers and artists spanning half a century encounter one another in the exhibition entitled “Colour and Abstraction. Generations in Dialogue” in the Textielmuseum. The older generation who researches aspects such as colour and abstraction using textiles meets a younger generation who approaches these themes from more of a thematic point of view. The creative process is illustrated using film material, drawings, and patterns. Exhibits include work by Peter Struycken, Lam de Wolf, Bertjan Pot, Formafantasma, and Rafaël Rozendaal.

Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design

Vitra Design Museum, Weil/Rhine / DE
– 10.03.2019
design-museum.de 

Designed simultaneously as “a retrospective and a themed exhibition”, the Vitra Design Museum sheds light on the life and work, influence and visions of the industrial designer and author Victor Papanek, as well as on the relationship between design and complex, global problems in general. Above all, Papanek laid a foundation for critical, social, and ecological thinking and action in the field of design, particularly through publications such as “Design for the Real World” (1971) and “Design for Human Scale” (1983). A media installation based on his theses immerses the visitor in his thought processes. Also on display are objects from his estate that have never been shown before, such as notebooks, letters, furniture, and slides. 20 projects by contemporary designers who reflect and develop Papanek’s approaches build a bridge to the present day.

Hautnah. Die Filmkostüme von Barbara Baum

Deutsches Filmmuseum, Frankfurt/Main / DE
– 10.03.2019
deutsches-filminstitut.de 

[Up Close. Film Costumes by Barbara Baum] Barbara Baum is one of Germany’s most renowned costume designers and can look back on almost 50 years of collaboration with international directors and producers. Baum’s repertoire includes particularly elaborate, historical costumes for films such as “Catherine the Great” (1995) and “Buddenbrooks” (2008). Among other things, the exhibition documents the process of creation “from the first reading of the script to historical research and on to the initial sketches and the exciting moment of the first fitting with the actors”. In her work, the designer is guided above all by the choice of cloth. The exhibition uses the tactile qualities of this material, supplemented by audio material, and information in Braille, to offer also an experience to blind and visually impaired people.

berlinischegalerie.de 

For ten years now, Videoart at Midnight, a screening of video art every month on a Friday, has been taking place at the Babylon cinema in Berlin. To mark this anniversary, the Berlinische Galerie is now dedicating a solo exhibition to video artist Raphaela Vogel (born 1988). Vogel graduated from the Städelschule in Frankfurt/Main in 2014 and now lives in Amsterdam. She always takes the leading role herself in her videos and exposes her body to observation by camera drones. Among other things, she deals with the conflict between femininity and “often male-defined technology”. In the context of the exhibition, the video projections are framed by peculiar objects, such as a Dixi urinal or a revolving crane. As a result, Vogel allows viewers to be immersed in her very own, seemingly post-apocalyptic world.

65+ Design History and Stories. The Institute for New Technical Form

Institut für Neue Technische Form, Darmstadt / DE
– 17.03.2019
institut-fuer-neue-technische-form.de 

On 18 November 2018 at 12 noon, an exhibition taking stock of 65 years of design will open at 11 Friedensplatz in Darmstadt. That is how long INTEF, as it is commonly known, has existed. In the heart of the city, it wants to offer a showcase for the world of products from art nouveau to the present day and thus promote and present design independently and confidently. If you consider that the 65 exhibition stations are but a glimpse into the history of INTEF’s work, and you also take into account that the Schneider Collection, available to INTEF, is so extensive that the materials could furnish several design museums, and finally also that there are still numerous archives and warehouses full of stuff, then you can only hope that this exhibition won’t just take stock, but will actually mark a turning point for Darmstadt’s design and exhibition policy.

Together! The New Architecture of the Collective

Grassi Museum for Applied Arts, Leipzig / DE
– 17.03.2019
grassimuseum.de 

The problem of affordable and liveable housing is becoming increasingly acute, especially in cities, where rents are rising. Previous housing construction projects have only partially addressed the situation. The exhibition “Together! The New Architecture of the Collective” presents solutions against a background of historical and contemporary projects on collective living. With an approach akin to research, the exhibition reflects the human need for community, while acknowledging the importance of privacy.

68. Pop und Protest

Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, Hamburg / DE
– 17.03.2019
mkg-hamburg.de 

The 1968 movement was a time in which people all around the world rebelled and began to fight back vociferously against existing structures using various cultural means, from music to fashion to cinema critical of society and a new interest in (public) discussions. They fought for freedom, peace, equal rights, and acceptance – values that are being discussed again today. The Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (MKG) has brought together 200 objects from its own collection and loans, including artworks, photographs, fashion, posters, and products to illustrate the mood of this period. The Spiegel canteen, finalised by Verner Panton for Spiegel publishing house in 1969 and transferred to the MKG in 2012, forms the centrepiece of the exhibition.

Times of Waste − Was übrig bleibt

Gewerbemuseum Winterthur, Winterthur / CH
– 17.03.2019
gewerbemuseum.ch 

“Waste may be a promising resource or an unavoidable residue. Waste is political and social, but above all unavoidable. Waste never disappears completely and always leaves a footprint,” says the introduction to the “Times of Waste – The Residue” exhibition. In order to trace the path taken by waste, the exhibition follows a smartphone, tracking its route as it is transported and recycled. This everyday object takes the visitor to very different places, including landfill sites, research laboratories, and repair workshops, and meets the people there. The questions and problems that are brought up in this way demand new solutions and a deeper engagement with the topic. The exhibition has been devised in conjunction with a research project carried out at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basle.

Josef Frank

Designmuseo, Helsinki / FI
– 17.03.2019
designmuseum.fi 

In a retrospective, the Designmuseo in Helsinki looks at the work of designer and architect Josef Frank (1885–1967). After studying and obtaining his doctorate in Vienna, teaching at the city’s School of Arts and Crafts and co-founding the Vienna Werkbund, he fled to Sweden to escape the Nazis. There, he became famous for his furniture and textile designs, amongst others for Svenskt Tenn. In addition, his aim was to have a positive influence on people’s lives through design, architecture, and urban planning. The show examines his principles and visions using numerous exhibits, which come from collections in Sweden and Austria.

Downtown Denise Scott Brown

Architekturzentrum Wien, Vienna / AT
– 18.03.2019
azw.at 

The Architekturzentrum Wien is dedicating the first comprehensive retrospective to Denise Scott Brown, an urban planner, architect, teacher, and author born in 1931 whose work has only just been rediscovered. Scott Brown has had a great influence on architecture from the 1960s, both practically and theoretically, but great appreciation for their joint work was attributed mainly to her partner and husband, Robert Venturi. With photographic documentation as well as architectural and urban planning projects on all five continents, the designer advocated an undogmatic formal language and targeted interventions in existing structures. The exhibition includes objects, photographs, plans, collages, quotations, and videos and is itself designed as a kind of urban setting.

Playing with Scale:
 How Designers Use Set Models

Olivier Theatre, Wolfson Gallery, London / GB
– 23.03.2019
nationaltheatre.org.uk 

Taking the Jocelyn Herbert Archive as a starting point, the exhibition “Playing with Scale” presents five sets from the National Theatre London. Jocelyn Herbert (1917–2003) is a stage designer known for her laconic, but also atmospherically dense style. Two current productions by the stage designers Anthony Ward (“Exit the King”) and Hildegard Bechtler (“Antony & Cleopatra”) will also be in the spotlight. According to exhibition curator Eleanor Margolies, the exhibition also focuses on how stage sets can function as an “exquisite miniature world” in the preliminary rehearsal process, and as a starting point for a creative and democratic exchange between the various actors and trades involved in the production. The exhibits include built models as well as first sketch attempts and everything up to and including 3D models.

Home Futures

The Design Museum, London / GB
– 24.03.2019
designmuseum.org 

The question of how we will live in the future has occupied designers down the ages. But what happens to these visions when the future has been reached from that earlier point of view? The “Home Futures” exhibition displays futuristic designs from the 20th century created by designers such as Ettore Sottsass, Joe Colombo, Superstudio, and Enzo Mari and juxtaposes them with current developments. Scenarios and questions – relevant back then and now – are divided into subject areas and approaches to solutions are presented, such as living in limited space, modern nomadism, minimalism, and smart homes. The exhibition was created in co-operation with the IKEA Museum in Älmhult, Sweden and will also be on show there after it closes in London.

Andy Warhol. Pop Goes Art

Museum für Angewandte Kunst Köln / DE
– 24.03.2019
museenkoeln.de 

For the first time, the exhibition “Andy Warhol. Pop Goes Art” is showing almost all of the album covers designed by Andy Warhol, together with the myriad sketches and designs that he did for them. The exhibits also include a range of films and audio clips that contribute to a comprehensive showcasing of the interplay between art and music. Warhol (1928–1987) worked with the medium of records from 1949 onwards, first as a commercial artist mainly designing the covers of jazz LPs, before moving on to design overall concepts for album covers in a range of genres in the 1960s, including “Sticky Fingers” (1971) by The Rolling Stones and the eponymous debut album by The Velvet Underground (1967).

Digital Imaginaries. Africas in Production

ZKM, Karlsruhe / DE
– 31.03.2019
zkm.de 

The topics of digitisation and digital transformation are major drivers for companies, governments, and societies worldwide. Following exhibitions, workshops, and events in Senegal and South Africa, the exhibition and research project “Digital Imaginaries” is currently showcasing contemporary works by African artists in Karlsruhe that address the “contradictory diversity of digital phenomena in African”. The works shown in the exhibition point to the African stories, practices, and realities that come to bear in this context and aim to inspire reflection on what an emancipated digital future can look like without necessarily conforming to market-oriented interests and post-colonial hegemony.

Back Side – Fashion from Behind

Fashion and Lace Museum, Brussels / BE
– 31.03.2019
fashionandlacemuseum.brussels 

Our back makes up a large area of our body – and yet it still eludes our own field of vision and often our consciousness. The exhibition “Back Side – Fashion from Behind” has assembled 70 creations that show how fashion design has dealt with the back in different ways. Whether as a sassy revealing, a place for statements and motifs, silhouettes forming lacing or straps for heavy loads, the back can set the scene and be used and interpreted in many ways. With works by labels and designers such as Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Raf Simons, and Balmain, the show provides an overview of this potential for creativity from the 18th century to the present day.

Sagmeister and Walsh. Beauty

MAK, Vienna / AT
– 31.03.2019
mak.at 

With a large-scale, interactive exhibition, Stefan Sagmeister – this time together with Jessica Walsh – is now dedicating himself after happiness to another grand theme of human culture: beauty. To prove that beauty is more than pure superficiality, various installations and objects invite visitors to examine the different facets of this concept: from digital experiments on symmetry to experiencing sound, colour, and scent through the senses to the question of what makes one person attractive to another. The topic areas, “What Is Beauty?”, “The History of Beauty”, “In the Eye of the Beholder”, “Experience Beauty”, and “Transforming Beauty” will be rounded off by “The Beauty Archive” curated by Sagmeister and Walsh, presenting a selection of “particularly beautiful” exhibits from the museum’s collection.

Programmed: Rules, Codes, and Choreographies in Art, 1965–2018

Whitney Museum of American Art, New York / UM
– 14.04.2019
whitney.org 

Nowadays, programmed systems are an everyday thing for us, but their influence on art can be traced back to the 1960s. This exhibition is divided into two sections: “Rule, Instruction, Algorithm” deals with the question of how images and objects can be generated based on systems and specifications; “Signal, Sequence, Resolution” focuses on works that manipulate (television) images using code. One highlight is the work “Fin de Siècle II” by Nam June Paik presented between the two areas, which is on public display again for the first time after six years of restoration work. Also, the augmented reality artwork “Unexpected Growth” by Tamiko Thiel simulating the flooding of New York, will celebrate its premiere here.

Frankfurt Modernism. 1919–1933

Museum Angewandte Kunst, Frankfurt/Main / DE
– 14.04.2019
museumangewandtekunst.de 

The exhibition “Frankfurt Modernism” showcases artefacts from Frankfurt during the Weimar Republic, and is the first attempt to comprehensively reappraise this epoch in terms of design history – approaching the claim of that time of designing the city anew both aesthetically and socially. Given the 600 or so exhibits that have been announced, we should be prepared to see all sorts of things.

West of Modernism: California Graphic Design, 1975–1995

LACMA, Los Angeles / US
– 21.04.2019
lacma.org 

For many generations, California has been a place of aspiration and a symbol of freedom, liberality, and individual development. This was also true of graphic design in the second half of the 20th century. During this period, many designers increasingly emancipated themselves from the generally valid and rigid rules of modernism, which were upheld primarily by the established scene in New York. Spurred on further by the new opportunities offered by rapidly advancing technological progress, the West Coast forged its own path, both in practice and theory. As part of its Graphic Design Initiative, which aims to gradually build up a comprehensive graphic design collection, the LACMA sheds light on the period between 1975 and 1995 by means of posters and publications.

Koloman Moser

MAK, Vienna / AT
– 22.04.2019
mak.at 

Almost no one other than Koloman Moser (1868–1918) lived up to the ideal of the universal artist held in high esteem by the Vienna Secession; his work extends from painting to the design of furniture, objects, and interiors to stage design and fashion. This retrospective to mark the centenary of his death looks at his extensive oeuvre in chronological order and, at the same time, includes those who blazed a trail and accompanied him on his path. Arranged in stages of his life, beginning with Vienna as a source of inspiration and concluding with Moser’s final return to painting, the “Koloman Moser. Universal Artist between Gustav Klimt and Josef Hoffmann” exhibition presents 600 exhibits, many of which have previously never been accessible to the public.

Einfach gut. Design aus Dänemark

Wilhelm Wagenfeld Haus, Bremen / DE
– 22.04.2019
wilhelm-wagenfeld-stiftung.de 

[Simply Good. Design from Denmark] When it comes to Danish design, most people probably think of wellknown mid-century classics. This exhibition wants to prove that this country has much more to offer. Although the exhibits include furniture and lighting by Finn Juhl, Verner Panton, and Nanna Ditzel, these are complemented by new interpretations of craftsmanship and projects that see design as a tool for tackling major global problems. As a result, the curators want to leave behind the purely nostalgic perspective and raise questions about sustainability, social perception, and the image of Danish design. The exhibition was shown in Berlin back in 2017 and has been extended and adapted for the Wilhelm Wagenfeld Haus.

Cultural Threads

Textiel Museum, Tilburg / NL
– 12.05.2019
textielmuseum.nl 

In the exhibition “Cultural Threads”, textiles serve as mediators and witnesses of sociopolitical connections in a world whose boundaries are becoming increasingly blurred. Stories are discovered and told, relationships are revealed, identities are shaped, and perspectives for the future are opened up. In addition to works by international textile artists such as Hana Miletić, Otobong Nkanga, Aiko Tezuka, and Mary Sibande, new works have been created especially for the exhibition in the Textiel Lab. Eylem Aladogan, for example, uses textiles from the Ottoman Empire to examine her Turkish origins and the political situation there under Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, while Vincent Vulsma, using sculptures, tackles the historical role of fabrics and indigo in the slave trade.

Museum Europäischer Kulturen, Berlin / DE
– 23.06.2019
smb.museum 

5 November 2017 saw the opening of the special exhibition of the Museum Europäischer Kulturen in Berlin: it is about wool. The interdisciplinary exhibition aims to explore the origin, processing and cultural background of wool, and to appeal to all age groups, while encouraging visitors to play and participate. The exhibition aims to provide a comprehensive picture that sheds light on manufacturing processes, shepherd’s lives and shearing, combing and washing, as well as processing into yarns, textiles, and building materials. This highlights the theme of cultural roots in an age where we see so many losses of traditions.

Like you! Freundschaft digital und analog

Museum für Kommunikation Frankfurt / DE
– 01.09.2019
mfk-frankfurt.de 

As studies have shown many times, having friends is a basic human need, because loneliness makes you ill (↗ form 280, p. 70). The exhibition “Like You! Friendship – Digital and Analogue” asks what constitutes friendship and, above all, what changes digital media and means of communication are causing in this respect. Arranged into sections entitled “Making Friends”, “Having Friends”, and “Losing Friends” this special kind of interpersonal relationship is examined throughout all eras. The “discovery table” then offers the possibility of interacting and exchanging information with one another, either analogously or digitally, from using messages sent by note to those sent by robots. The supporting programme of guided tours, discussions, workshops, and film screenings is aimed at both adults and children.

Shine on Me. Wir und die Sonne

Deutsches Hygiene-Museum, Dresden / DE
– 18.09.2019
dhmd.de 

The sun enables and influences life on earth like nothing else. It is the energy source, rhythm generator, and centre of our planetary system – and has not yet been completely researched, not by far. No wonder, therefore, that mankind has always had a special relationship with this star. The “Shine on Me. The Sun and Us” exhibition is dedicated to the sun and the many facets of its scientific and cultural significance. Divided into seven areas, its role is examined as a deity, timer, symbol, emitter of light, health factor, energy source, and star. From ancient rituals to modern technology, this covers a broad spectrum of human history. The topic is made more accessible to both children and adults with an accompanying programme of lectures, discussions, readings, and guided tours.

Politics of Design, Design of Politics

Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum, Munich / DE
– 29.09.2019
dnstdm.de 

With the exhibition “Friedrich von Borries. Politics of Design – Design of Politics”, the Neue Sammlung continues its exhibition series on contemporary positions in design, launched in 2015, and now in its fourth year. Under the conceptual direction of Friedrich von Borries, the exhibition breaks down museum boundaries in the permanent collection and combines museum pieces with DIY objects contributed by participants in an open call. The heart of the exhibition is its aim to question the interaction between design and politics: To what extent are design objects products of political dynamics? How can design contribute to changing these dynamics? These questions will be discussed in the context of the exhibition in workshops with representatives from politics, science, and culture.

111/99. Questioning the Modernist Design Vocabulary

Werkbundarchiv – Museum der Dinge, Berlin / DE
– 13.01.2020
museumderdinge.de 

At the Werkbundarchiv – Museum der Dinge in Berlin there is a sequence of four exhibitions on show, the last of which runs until the beginning of next year. These exhibitions demonstrate the connections between the Deutscher Werkbund, founded in 1907, and the Bauhaus, founded in 1919, and also the influences on modernism emanating from the institutions. The first part in the series displays commercial graphics that illustrate the development from Art Nouveau to modernism.

Reflex Bauhaus

Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum, München / DE
08.02.2019 – 02.02.2020
dnstdm.de 

Bauhaus in 2019 is going to be celebrated throughout the world with a large number of exhibitions and projects. The Design Museum in Munich is also taking up the theme and at the same time emphasises its own historical ties, directly after the founding of the museum in 1925. “Reflex Bauhaus. 40 Objects – 5 Conversations” not only presents a large number of original objects from the collection’s inventory, including textiles, furniture, lighting, and ceramics, but also places them in context with contemporary works. Five artists, namely the designer Ayzit Bostan, the poet Barbara Köhler, the architect Anupama Kundoo, the composer Junya Oikawa, and the artist Sofie Thorsen have been invited to develop a stance in dialogue with one of the exhibits. The aim is to “enable viewers to not only identify the historical origins of these objects, but also to reflect on them today”.
