Trix & Robert Haussmann
10 February – 29 April 18
Opening: 9 February 18, 7 pm
The Swiss architect and designer duo Trix & Robert Haussmann will occupy the first and second floor of KW Institute for Contemporary Art, within a scenography conceptualized together with the curators Fredi Fischli and Niels Olsen. The show at KW will be the first significant survey of their work in Europe and showcases highlights of their personal archive, the main works of the collection at the Museum für Gestaltung in Zurich, works of the estate by Peter Röthlisberger and actual compartments of interior design. Trix & Robert Haussmann have been pioneers in breaking with the premises of modern, canonical orders and concepts, reinterpreting playfully the linguistic dogmas of architecture theories.
The exhibition will travel to Nottingham Contemporary in 2018.
