Universe Richard Buckminster Fuller
11 June - 18 September, 2011
The great visionary Richard Buckminster Fuller saw openness, a willingness to experiment and intuition equally as fundamental principles of his work. His fusion of precise thinking and spontaneous, creative insight, his holistic view of the universe, have fascinated many artists – particularly again at the dawn of the 21st century. The exhibition, developed together with Markus Richter (Berlin) of Marta Herford, illuminates this interest in the spectacular ideas and visions of the early 1960s with fascinating works by 21 international artists. They embrace Fuller’s geometric discoveries, further develop his social utopias, critically question his innovations and adopt his humour and playful approach.
