Contemporary art in dialogue with 20th century architecture and design
Over the last ten years, the Daimler Art Collection has developed a focal point in the field of constructive, conceptual and minimalistic tendencies from the 1920s to the present day. A particular interest was taken here in artists who have worked on the borders between free and applied disciplines.
'Minimalism and Applied I' (2007) introduced fine artists who work within the transition to architecture, product and graphic design. In contrast with this, the second part of the series focuses on a dialogue between outstanding early exponents of architecture and furniture design with international contemporary art.
The third part of the exhibition series is presenting artists and designers with aesthetic concepts in the border area of art and design with a specific focus on surfaces, materials, and pattern.
