Schrill Bizarr Brachial. Das Neue Deutsche Design der 80er Jahre
Fancy. Bizarre. Brute. The New German design of the 1980s
In the eighties, artists and designers in West German cities caused a sensation with fancy, bizarre, brute and ironic furniture and objects. The movement was called Neues Deutsches Design and it stood for a radical new approach offside the established systems, alike the Neue Deutsche Welle or the Neue Deutsche Film: Design was made outside the framework of industrial production and was influenced by all kinds of cultural and subcultural sources.
On show are now more than 80 original objects from Stiletto, Volker Albus, Heinz Landes, Axel Kufus, Kunstflug, Pentagon, Andreas Brandolini,
among them the installation "Das Deutsche Wohnzimmer" from Documenta 8 and the legendary exhibition "Kaufhaus des Ostens".
