One of the real joys of the new Grassi Museum for Applied Arts Leipzig permanent exhibition “Art Nouveau to Present” is that many of the exhibits are still in use today – and as such provide the best evidence that the museum isn’t about dusty old objects.
But documenting cultural and social change.
On Thursday March 22nd Sabine Epple, curator of the museum’s modern collection, will lead a themed guided tour through the 20th century section of “Art Nouveau to Present” In addition to introducing generally well known objects such as the Panton Chair, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Chair or the numerous Bauhaus objects, the tour will also focus on many of the lesser known pieces.
We imagine Ron Arad’s scaffolding bedroom/office installation will feature.
The guided tour “I know that! Familiar and unfamiliar 20th century design!” takes place on Thursday March 22nd at 4pm.
