Falling Through Space and Time

GREGOR HILDEBRANDT

10.10.2021-27.03.2022

For the first time in the history of the Mies van der Rohe Haus, an exhibition plays on the entire expanse of the outdoor space. The Obersee also becomes a reflection surface. Gregor Hildebrandt has realized a grandiose work for the house - diverse and poetic at the same time. Hildebrandt's installation, a black sail woven from magnetic tapes, was hoisted on the Obersee only for a short time at the beginning of the exhibition. A bronze peasant chess piece, more than two meters high, marks the garden space. The two opposite exhibition rooms of the L-shaped Mies van der Rohe house are conceived as a positive-negative space and thus also set in relation to each other beyond the architectural by means of art.
