 (2007)

This event was co-organized by the Jugendstilverein Bad Nauheim and the Denkmalakademie Schloss Romrod (Academy of Listed Buildings located in Romrod Castle).

Exhibition "Album of a collector" of the Cercle Guimard at the Horta Museum in Bruxelles-Brussel, November 7, 2007 - January 13, 2008

 (2007)

In 1903, on the occasion of the first Exhibition of the Dwelling in the Great Palace, Hector Guimard for own account published a series of postcards. These showed, through a selection of its achievements, the characteristics of its style and its capacity to intention to the revival of architecture and decorative arts. This iconography, often ignored or under-exploited, was not always on the initiative of the architect, nevertheless its name and its quality are very frequently mentioned and, thus, all these stereotypes take part in the testimony of its work in the time. The presentation of these images –xxx postcards, 1 leaflet, and 3 invitation cards- aims at clarifying the advertising use that the architect Hector Guimard, tried to develop with the postcard at the beginning of the twentieth century. It was then a modern and not very expensive means to diffuse images to illustrate a clear but strange concept; “The Guimard Style”. Guimard renews the experiment about 1910, with the real operation of the streets the Fountain, Gros and Agar where he even succeeds in reproducing the plans of the buildings on certain postcards. His last contribution to this type of publicity is related to the Town hall of the French village of the exhibition of decorative Arts of 1925. Guimard was not the only architect to use this medium. He is nevertheless that one who invested himself most personally. This explains why his work by far is represented most in the French art nouveau architecture.

Exhibition 'Vienne-Bruxelles' in Bruxelles-Brussel, 26 June - 23 December 2007

 (2007)


At the end of the XIXth century, an artistic movement was born in Vienna that was to have a major impact. It was known as the Secession. The key figures were the painter Gustav Klimt, the decorator Koloman Moser and the architect Josef Hoffmann. This exhibition seeks to recreate a little explored aspect of this artistic adventure, that of the reciprocal influence exercised by the two capitals around the focal points of the Stoclet Palace and the gallery L'Intérieur, opened in 1906 on the rue de Namur by Léon Sneyers, the most Viennese of Belgian architects. Among other fascinating figures, the exhibition evokes that of the great Parisian architect Robert Mallet-Stevens, nephew of the Stoclet couple, who was inspired by their Brussels mansion house to create his own language. Exhibition realized by the Modern Art Archives with the support of the Brussels-Capital Region.

The exhibition "Art Nouveau in Progress" will be presented at the Lodz Art Center from 3d to 25th November, 2007

 (2007)


Travelling exhibition of the Réseau Art Nouveau Network. « Art Nouveau in Progress » is totally different from, and complementary to, the great exhibitions which have so commendably celebrated Art Nouveau in recent years. It explores the destiny of the Art Nouveau heritage in the thirteen partner cities and brings to light several examples of previously unseen projects. The exhibition is set out in themed sections, offering a perspective of an artistic and cultural movement that developed simultaneously in a number of European cities. The exhibition’s originality lies in genuinely new discoveries of city planning projects, architectural creations and objets d’art.Indeed, apart from the five major works chosen by the partners and illustrated in the introduction, the exhibition presents works which have never previously been seen, have now disappeared, have not been recognized or are undergoing restoration. All are shown in the themed sections: vision, disappearance, continuity and regeneration. The exhibition tour therefore presents visitors with a history of the Art Nouveau heritage, from the process of its creation to its current functions, via the recollection of lost works. The exhibition has been presented in turn in each of the thirteen European cities over a period of about three years (has already been presented in Terrassa, Bruxelles-Brussel, Provincia di Varese, Barcelona, Nancy, Alesund, Glasgow, Helsinki, Riga, Praha, Budapest, Ljubljana, La Chaux-de-Fonds). At each stage the exhibition is completed by a local section, which focuses particularly on the distinctive features of that city’s Art Nouveau heritage.
