“Living Abstraction” is the title of a huge retrospective on the work and life of Swiss artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889-1943). The show, produced in cooperation with the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Tate, London, lets the visitor experience the evolution of Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s oeuvre from her beginnings in applied art to the architecture-related projects and abstract paintings. On display are her textile pieces such as pillows and tablecloths, bead works, a puppet theater, costumes, murals, furniture, architecture, graphic designs, paintings, drawings, sculptures, and reliefs.
