"Now", Perceptions of Time and Contemporary Design
Museum Martha Herford
10 September – 6 November 2011 in the Lippold Gallery (1. Floor)
Opening: 9 September, 19.30, admission free
More intensely than ever before designer objects now shape our time schedules by lending an aesthetic dimension to our feeling for time, and seemingly streamlining or accelerating our private and working lives. Without the accentuation of the new, design would be an endless repetition of the old. Aesthetic accentuation of our feeling for time is playing an increasingly important role in contemporary design. Issues examined in this fascinating and challenging exhibition organised by Marta Herford include consumerism, time and luxury, eternal youth and youthful age, zeitgeist design icons, contemporary materials and technologies, and specific visions of utopia.
