Charlotte Perriand: Inventing a New World

Foundation Louis Vuitton, Paris / FR
– 24.02.2020
fondationlouisvuitton.fr 

Charlotte Perriand worked as a partner in Le Corbusier’s architectural practice together with his nephew Pierre Jeanneret for ten years. It was during this period that the most iconic works of modern French design were created, such as the club chair Grand Confort No. LC2, the tubular steel chair Basculant no. B301, and the chaise longue no. B306 (all designed in 1928). Their close cooperation makes it impossible to determine authorship exactly, as according to Perriand herself the three worked together “like the fingers of one hand”. In addition to the collaboration between the three of them, the exhibition at the Louis Vuitton Foundation, held to mark the 20th anniversary of Charlotte Perriand’s death, highlights the special role played by this architect and designer in modern French interiors.

Cold War and Architectur

Architekturzentrum Wien / AT
– 24.02.2020
azw.at 

After the Second World War, it wasn’t just Austria’s politics that were shaken up. Occupied Vienna was also the place where the four victorious powers of Great Britain, the United States, France and the Soviet Union met and offered up their different ideologies. The exhibition is divided into four corresponding parts based on the occupation zones, with each intended to illustrate the cultural self-representations of the occupiers. To this end, the Architekturzentrum Wien is exhibiting photographs, plans, films and original drawings, some of which have never been shown before, illustrating the differences between the sectors.

All-Over. New Graphic Design from the Netherlands

Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg / DE
– 01.03.2020
mkg-hamburg.de 

After studying graphic design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, the two Dutch designers Harmen Liemburg and Richard Niessen worked together as “Golden Masters” for four years and discovered the technique of screen printing for themselves. In their work, they play with strong colors and patterns and develop expressive all-over structures. Since the end of their studio in 2002, the two designers have been working independently as freelance graphic designers and are producing high-quality screen prints to this day. Until January 5, 2020, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg [Museum of Art and Trade] will be showing around 70 posters and over 30 small-format prints by the two designers from the past twenty years.

Design of the Third Reich

Design Museum Den Bosch, ’s-Hertogenbosch / NL
– 01.03.2020
designmuseum.nl 

In 2008, Andreas Koop looked at the National Socialists’ approach to visual design in his book “NSCI”. The Design Museum Den Bosch is now dedicating an exhibition to the design of the Third Reich. Whereas the positive power of design to bring about social change is praised in many places, the museum sees it as its duty to take a critical look at the discipline and also to highlight its negative potential. Although the Third Reich was able to present itself in a visually powerful way - from Albert Speer’s architecture to the 1936 Olympic Games and Leni Riefenstahl’s films – the exhibition focuses on the contradictions that underlie its design ideology. Strictly filtered traditionalism and simultaneous fanaticism of the future, romanticism and enthusiasm for technology are juxtaposed. The exhibition shows Nazi design in architecture, furniture, magazines, and textbooks and is supported by an intergenerational visitor programme.

Ryoji Ikeda. data-verse

Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg / DE
– 29.03.2020
kunstmuseum-wolfsburg.de 

This is the first exhibition to include two large-format works from Ryoji Ikeda’s data-verse trilogy, the first of which could already be seen at the Venice Biennale this year. The visualizations span an arc from microscopic to galactic dimensions. For his work the artist aesthetically processed data from both the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and NASA, on the solar system, galaxies and possible multiverses. In between, Ikeda presents image sequences of the body, brain, cities, climates, air traffic and satellites. His visualizations give us an idea of the amount of data that defines our everyday life in the age of digitisation.

Sagmeister & Walsh: Beauty

Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg / DE
– 26.04.2020
mkg-hamburg.de 

In order to prove that beauty is more than just superficiality, Stefan Sagmeister and Jessica Walsh invite you to deal with the different facets of this term via various multimedia and multi-sensory installations and objects: from digital experiments on symmetry to the sensual experience of sound, color, and fragrance and all the way to the question of what makes a person attractive. Examples from the areas of graphic design, product design, architecture and urban planning illustrate the positive effects of beauty.

The Peaks of Art Deco

Grassi Museum Museum for Applied Arts, Leipzig / DE
– 11.10.2020
grassimak.de 

Anyone who has ever visited the Grassi Museum, admired its pointed Art Deco ornamentation and stood in the jagged pillar hall will know something about the prevalence of jagged motifs in art deco. The formal aesthetics of the museum’s architecture can also be seen in porcelain products from the 1920s and 1930s. The exhibition shows products from the porcelain factories of the interwar years. Their expressive, almost expressionist design uses jagged peaks and serrations as a central design element. The approximately 400 objects from three collections in the corresponding ambience of the pillar hall of the Grassi Museum showcase the diversity of the results.
