Art and Architects. Forms of Communication

  Copyright: © Kunstgeschichte  


This seminar is dedicated to a media theoretical perspective on the handling of art in the context of the architectural practice during the Modernism. In 1925 LeCorbusier stages semiabstract art works by Amédée Ozenfant and Fernand Léger in the “Pavillon de l´Esprit Nouveau” in Paris. The architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe deals with practices of artists of the Avangarde and gains his main work thesis: “We reject any […] formalism. […] Neither yesterday, neither tomorrow, but only today is moldable. Only this kind of building is shaped.” Such and similar contemporary expressions are forms of communication. But to what extend is the then present art of relevance? This seminar broaches the issue of the relation between arts and architects while focusing on the question of the connected communicative potential in the relation.
