Falling Through Space and Time



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.
