PRIVATE UTOPIA

Cultural setting of the Interior in the 19th and 20th Century


Book Presentation Tuesday 19.01.2016 | 18:30h | Friedrich-Kiesler Stiftung

When

In the 19th and 20th century, interior spaces developed into places of intimacy and therefore into „Private Utopias“.
This publication discusses various aspects of interior spatial concepts, of their intellectual and artistic production from different points of view: aspects of culture, psychoanalysis, and architecture.
Sigmund Freud’s office in Vienna and the atelier of the artist Lucian Freud – being places that combined working, living and production – serve as paradigms; as does Marcel Proust’s work and living space, where he created his „Recherche du Temps Perdu“, Ludwig Wittgenstein’s house for his sister in Vienna, and finally the radical space concepts of Frederick Kiesler.

Contributions by: Beatriz Colomina, Rubén Gallo, Cornelia Klinger, Spyros Papapetros, August Sarnitz, Inge Scholz-Strasser, Helmut Strutzmann, and Jeanne Wolff-Bernstein.

Die Österreichische Friedrich und Lillian Kiesler-Privatstiftung & die Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien laden gemeinsam mit dem DE GRUYTER Verlag zur Buchpräsentation ein.
