I figured you’d appreciate this. It’s always nice to see that when times are tough, books still can provide a release.

Museum für Völkerkunde Hamburg - Schwedisches Design

Die kleine aber feine Ausstellung im Museum für Völkerkunde, zeigt wunderbare Stücke des schwedischen Designs. Wobei nicht nur eine innovative Idee wichtig ist, sondern auch die Vision von Nachhaltikeit, Umweltbewusstsein und Designstrategie. Hier nur eine kleine Auswahl der interessanten Ausstellungsstücke, die mir besonders ins Auge fielen. Für mehr Informationen zu den einzelnen Projekten bitte auf die Verlinkung klicken. 

Moé Takemuras “The Foreign Japanese Kitchen” zeigt in einfachen bebilderten Schritten wie man auch in Schweden die japanische Küche zelebrieren kann. Da es in Vergleich zu anderen europäischen Ländern (wie z.B. Deutschland) in Schweden weniger Möglichkeiten gibt asiatische Kochzutaten zu besorgen, zeigt die aus Japan stammende Designerin wie man mit regionalen (schwedischen) Zutaten einfache japanische Gerichte zubereiten kann. 

Jenny Ekdahl “Dear Disaster” - Die 2000 bewegliche Holzplättchen an der Schranktür fordern den Benutzer dazu auf ein individuelles Motiv mit Hilfe der eigenen Finger zu erstellen. Gewaltsame und zeitgleich wunderschöne Naturkräfte dienten der Designerin als Inspiration für dieses Möbelstück. 

Mit Mikael Axelssons “Independent Light” ist eine stromlose Selbstversorgung möglich. Durch das langsame Herunterkommen der per Hand aufgezogenen Gewichtssäcke wird ein Mechanismus in Gang gesetzt der eine Glühbirne für etwa 45 Minuten lang leuchten lässt. 

Jens Kallin und Max David Eriksson entwickelten die Braille Box. Einen Drucker den Menschen mit und ohne Sehkraft bedienen können.

 Truth is Beauty by Marco Cochrane

One of the most eye-catching artworks at this year’s Burning Man festival was a 55-feet tall sculpture of a woman in a beautifully elegant pose. Truth is Beauty is the second of three sculptures in a series called The Bliss Project by artist Marco Cochrane. Constructed of welded steel rods and balls and covered in stainless steel mesh skin, the massive sculpture had interactive lighting effects that made it constantly change.

Gleich für das nächste Wochenende in den Kalender eintragen…

Was gibt es eigentlich in … Ungarn?

Einer der für mich bisher interessantesten Künstler aus Ungarn ist László Moholy-Nagy (*1895 in Bácsbarsod - 1946 in Chicago).

In seinem frühen Werk beschäftigte Moholy-Nagy sich mit nichtgegenständlicher Malerei und orientierte sich stark an Kasimir Malewitsch. Konstruktivismus und De Stijl-Bewegung beeinflussten stark sein Werk im Bereich des Graphikdesigns. Später arbeitete er an der Seite von Walter Gropius als Lehrer am Bauhaus und eröffnete nach seiner Emigration in die USA das New Bauhaus in Chicago. Als Regisseur drehte er einige Stummfilme, die in Europa jedoch weitgehend unbekannt sind.

Weitaus bekannter sind jedoch seine Fotografien und Fotogramme. Bei den Fotogrammen werden auf lichtempfindlichem Fotopapier Gegenstände ausgelegt und belichtet. Durch geschickte Platzierung der Lichtquelle(n) lassen sich diverse Effekte erzielen.  

Der Vorläufer des Fotogramms wurde bereits Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts von Thomas Wedgwood und William H.F. Talbot erfunden und von zahlreichen anderen Fotopionieren erprobt. Moholy-Nagy war einer der wichtigsten Künstler des 20. Jahrhunderts, der sich theoretisch und praktisch mit dem Fotogramm auseinandersetzte und dieser Kunstform zur Verbreitung verhalf. Moholy-Nagy experimentierte mit transparenten Objekten, langen Belichtungszeiten und Bewegung der Objekte und wurde somit zum Begründer der Lumina Kinetic Art.

DOCUMENTAL 100 AÑOS DE GEGO

Despliegue de la línea en infinitas posibilidades desarrollado en el espacio como objeto y soporte de la creación.

La escultura planteada como problema de tensión y fuerzas, el papel decisivo de la experiencia corporal -no solo visual- de la obra y la interacción del espectador y la obra en un mismo espacio.

Compuestas fundamentalmente de líneas e intersecciones, las esculturas de Gego organizan y dan movimiento al espacio, a la vez que definen y enmarcan el vacío. De alguna manera, el vacío es utilizado en sus obras como elemento activo, como materia modeladora del espacio. Huyendo del proceso de la soldadura, Gego idea un sistema de ensamblaje de varillas metálicas que se irá depurando con el uso de materiales industriales que, a su vez, le permiten autonomía total en su producción.

Video producido por Fundación Gego y BetaStudio en el marco de la conmemoración del centenario del nacimiento de la artista Gego. “Con una visión sensible, su director, Luis Montenegro Lafont, logra en este video un impecable recuento poético de la Reticulárea, obra cumbre de esta maravillosa artista.” Fundación Gego.
