Christian Philipp Müller
29 April – 02 June 1992
Rather the partial reconstruction of an epoch - more a sociological undertaking than an art exhibition. In Forgotten Future Christian Philipp Müller unites four artists of the 50s with their works.
“Modernity became popular at the end oft he Fifties. Lending itself to spectacle, it laid itself open to its worst enemies. Their arguments became independent criteria; ideas about the harmony of art and an aesthetic social hygiene replaced the classic conflict between technological and social elements. This exhibition of works by Le Corbusier, Nicolas Schöffer and Veit Harlan is not intended to reopen the old debate for and against modernity, but to spotlight a historic constellation where the anti-bourgeois early modern style declined and new coalitions were formed.”
