HELLA JONGERIUS: WOVEN COSMOS
29 April 2021 00:00 - 05 September 2021 00:00
With the solo exhibition Woven Cosmos, the Gropius Bau presents to a broad public this unique and path-breaking figure from the realm of design and applied arts.
Woven Cosmos is the result of collaborative research with the Berlin-based Jongeriuslab design team. Jongerius is developing a number of installations that fill the rooms of the Gropius Bau, including a loom for three-dimensional weaving, a synergetic method for spinning yarn and woven structures proposed as architectural elements. Jongeriuslab will be working in the exhibition spaces every day.
The show is closely entwined with the history of the Gropius Bau, once a Museum and School of the Decorative Arts with its own workshops, a place where different disciplines came together.
