FREDERICK KIESLER: FUNCTION FOLLOWS VISION, VISION FOLLOWS REALITY. Ed. by Oliver Klimpel. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 116 pp. 17 x 10 cm. ISBN 9783956791703 In English.
Publisher's description: This important collection of unpublished and rare texts and correspondence by Austrian-American architect, theoretician, exhibition designer and artist Frederick Kiesler, written between 1927 and 1957, is published to accompany the exhibition Function Follows Vision, Vision Follows Reality at Kunsthalle Wien (2015), curated by Luca Lo Pinto and Vanessa Joan Miller. A slender but deeply informative catalog focuses on Kiesler's innovative forms and methods placed in conversation with several contemporary artists engaged in his aesthetics and ideas. Artist-writer Francesco Pedraglio, for example, transforms Kiesler's writings on window displays into an abstract dialogue audio piece. Photographer Annette Kelm's still-life images meet Kiesler's still lives of garments for Saks Fifth Avenue window display of 1927-28. Kiesler's original drawings, correspondence and photos of his legendary displays are also presented along with artworks by Leonor Antunes, Olga Balema, Celine Condorelli, Morton Feldman, Charlotte Moth, Luca Trevisani and Nicole Wermers.
