- The first publication in 10 years on Kiesler's “Endless House”
- 2015 is the year of Kiesler for several reasons. It is the 125th anniversary of his birth, the 50th anniversary of his death, and 50 years since “Shrine of the Book” in Jerusalem
Aims and Scope
After the success of Unbuildable Tatlin?!, a book is now available on Friedrich Kiesler’s visionary “Endless House”, which was only ever realized in the form of a model. It presents the current state of research and discusses the possibility of realizing the project using today's means, and it also brings together various contributions by artists and architects who reflect on Kiesler’s most important work. Texts were contributed by Sanford Kwinter, Klaus Bollinger, Brian Hatton, Laura McGuire, Florian Medicus, Jill Meissner, and Gerd Zillner, with the foreword by Hani Rashid. Visual art contributions were made by Andrea Zittel, Olafur Eliasson, Tomas Saraceno, Ian Kiaer, Jürgen Mayer H., Hans Hollein, Heimo Zobernig, and others.
""Endless Kiesler" dokumentiert faszinierend, tief- und hintergründig in vielen Skizzen, Fotos, der Rezeptionsgeschichte und den Anläufen zur Realisierung die Transformationen des "Endless House"."
