Friedrich Kiesler: Art Of This Century

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers
Edited by Dieter Bogner, Udo Kittelmann. Contributions by Friedrich Kiesler. Text by Milton Gendel, Eva Kraus, Valentina Sonzogni.

In 1942, New York art collector Peggy Guggenheim commissioned Friedrich Kiesler to design a gallery museum, to be called Art of This Century, for her collection of surrealist and abstract art. The resulting design, with its kinetic devices and biomorphic furniture, is, to this day, among the most exceptional spaces created for the display of art. It retains a deep influence on architects, designers, artists, and theoreticians alike. This book presents a rich selection of drawings, gouaches, and various other materials from the archive of the Friedrich Kiesler Center in Vienna, allowing the reader to reconstruct the origins of Kiesler's design, and an almost flawless outline of the Art of This Century project. Texts and research materials provide new information on the gallery's spatial structure as well as the features of its visual design.
