I am all of glass.
Marianne Brandt and the art of glass today
Industriemuseum Chemnitz (DE)
– 1 Dec 2019
Glass is the focus of the exhibition entitled “Ich bin ganz von Glas. Marianne Brandt und die gläserne Kunst von heute” at the Industriemuseum Chemnitz.
The works, which are exhibited as part of the 7th International Marianne Brandt Contest, range from illusionist installations to sculptures and architectural works.
These highly interesting works by sixty different designers and artists can be seen in the exhibition, and have been submitted under the category headings of Experiment, Photography and Product Design. The participants were introduced to the material in different ways resulting in works that are environmental experiments, different approaches to photography and displays of glass in an architectural context, and vessels and objects that focus on the human body. The experimental games with reflections are intended to stimulate self-reflection and question static images.
