Museum Haus Konstruktiv
For the first time, Museum Haus Konstruktiv is opening an exhibition that exclusively presents works on paper from its own collection. With selected printed graphics, drawings, gouaches, collages and photographs, we demonstrate this medium’s key role in the work of constructivist-concrete and conceptual artists.
Alongside painted works on canvas and sculptural works in granite, brass, acrylic glass and other materials, many representatives of constructivist-concrete art also worked with paper.
Max Bill, Richard Paul Lohse, Karl Gerstner and Gottfried Honegger, for example, with their innovatively designed advertising posters, advertisements, books and company brochures, influenced modern Swiss graphic design and helped it to become internationally renowned. Also for their independent artwork, some constructivist-concrete artists intensively addressed the challenges and possibilities of graphics, and the use of various printing techniques.
