About

The exhibition KONSTRUKTIV brings together protagonists of Concrete art and unites works that have not been accessible to the public for a long time. The term was introduced by Theo van Doesburg in 1924 and describes an art that is based on geometric foundations and refers to nothing other than itself. In this sense, concrete works should not be named as abstractions of an environment, but as a pure form. Josef Albers had used the term 'Konkret' early on; Max Bill took it up and organized the first international exhibition in 1944, making Josef Albers the forerunner, but Max Bill the finisher and realizer of concrete art.

The exhibition KONSTRUKTIV brings together some 30 paintings and sculptures by Max Bill, Josef Albers, Georges Vantongerloo, Camille Graeser, Karl Gerstner, Richard Paul Lohse, Antonio Calderara, Verena Loewensberg and Sophie Taeuber-Arp.
