“SPACE ART – MADE IN DARMSTADT 1904 TO 1914” – Museum Künstlerkolonie Darmstadt
The exhibition presents the innovative work of the Darmstadt Artists’ Colony between 1904 and 1914. Following on from the first part of the collection presentation “RAUMKUNST – Made in Darmstadt 1901”, the second part also refers to the idea of the artists’ colony members to achieve an interpenetration of art and everyday life with each individual project design. Individual objects were not only to be aesthetically designed, but were also to merge together – as part of completely designed room arrangements – to form a total work of art.
