Publisher's description: Friedrich Kiesler -- Life Visions introduces a visionary of the Viennese Moderne movement. The artist, designer, architect, stage designer, and exhibition designer Friedrich Kiesler (1890-1965) influenced European and American architecture and art scene with his avant-garde contributions; his oeuvre remains a source of inspiration to this day. This catalogue illustrates Kiesler's entire oeuvre and discusses his theory of "correalism" concerning the relationship between works of art, humans, and space, as well as his innovative exhibition design. Contributions from contemporary artists such as Leonor Antunes, Celine Condorelli, Verena Dengler, Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Apolonija Sustersic, and Rirkrit Tiravanija give an insight into Kiesler's importance today.
