Comprehensive new presentation of the collection of Jugendstil/Art Nouveau and Modernism in the Artists' Colony Museum (Museum Künstlerkolonie). On the basis of works of fine and applied art, as well as models and multimedia presentations the outstanding importance of artists' colony for the development of architecture, art and design since 1900 will be presented.
The exhibition highlights six chronologically important steps in the period 1898-1914, which enable the visitors to envision the wide spectrum of artistic creation of the Darmstadt Artists' Colony. Here, an emphasis is placed on the four major presentations, which took place at the Mathildenhöhe in the years 1901, 1904, 1908 and 1914. The exhibition "World concepts" covers both wings of the Artists’ Colony Museum and thus offers over 450m2 of exhibition space for around 300 art works.
The exhibition presents works of art of all 23 former Artists' Colony members, with outstanding works by Peter Behrens, Hans Christiansen and Joseph Maria Olbrich. It will also present art works from the municipal art collection of Darmstadt, which are first issued in the Artists' Colony Museum.
In addition to a bilingual audio guide (German and English) a web app for smartphones will be available for the visitors to explore the exhibition and the exhibition grounds. A specially designed children's guide will also be available from May at the Artists' Colony Museum.
Curator: Dr. Philipp Gutbrod, Director of the Institute Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt
The New Millennia exhibition, set up in celebration of the 150th birth anniversary of the Slovenian architect Maks Fabiani (1865–1962), is where the famous architect's thoughts on the future meet the work of modern-day urban planners and architects.
Maks Fabiani was one of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy's most important urban planners in and one of the most influential architects at the turn of the 20th century. Fabiani was the author of an essay titled Acma, l'anima del mondo, which offers an analysis of the development of modern man and society.
The essay ends with a chapter titled New Millennia, which discusses the future. The New Millennia exhibition presents modern urban plans, concepts, programmes, and interventions created by generations of urban planners and architects following in Fabiani's wake. Their comparison with the thoughts expressed in Fabiani's essay reveal Fabiani as a true visionary.
The Louis Comfort Tiffany Chronology, the Morse Museum’s authoritative timeline of Tiffany’s life, is now available on our website. It is currently as thorough a chronological listing of the basic facts of Tiffany’s personal and professional development as we know exists and will be updated as research reveals new information. Search by year, by a category of his life, or by keywords. Search “Favrile glass,” for example, to find what has been reported and recorded on Tiffany’s work in the medium for which he is best known. Entries in the chronology—which span from the birth of his grandfather in 1777 through the present day—are compiled from various sources including books, articles, contemporaneous accounts and records, as well as our own archival material.
