more than a year ago

Exhibition highlights at the Martin-Gropius-Bau

Friedrich Kiesler, born 1890 in Czernowitz (Chernivtsi), died 1965 in New York, was an Austro-American architect, stage designer, designer, artist and theoretician. His artistic approach blurring boundaries between individual artistic genres, his concept of an endlessly flowing space and his holistic theory of design Correalism belong to the greatest visions of the 20th century and enjoy undiminished topicality. Over and above this, Kiesler was a central figure in the network of New York’s aesthetic community, and his circle of friends reads like a Who-is-Who of the Avant-garde.

From 12 April until 5 November 2017, "The Luther Effect" examines 500 years of Protestantism in the world. The diversity and historical impact of the Reformation is discussed, but also the potential for conflicts across four continents.
