Frederick Kiesler: Life Visions
Exhibition, MAK, Vienna, Austria.
Frederick Kiesler not only fascinated a generation of artists and architects with his revolutionary, utopian ideas. The transdisciplinary contributions made by the Austrian-American artist, designer, and architect continue to influence the European and American avant-garde today.
Illuminated is this trend-setting visionary’s fascinatingly complex body of work, out-of-the-box thinking, and theory of Correalism, which he used to thematise the relationship between artwork, human, and environment, as well as his activities as an architect and designer.
His holistic concept includes the fusion of artistic and scientific insights and modes of presentation, and in particular, removing the separation between autonomous art and real life.
