Musée cantonal de design et, d’arts appliqués contemporains


Dear Sir, Madam,

A CHAIR AND YOU in October 2022 will be mudac’s first exhibition, following on from the inaugural events, and will occupy the whole of the museum’s new exhibition halls in the heart of the Plateforme 10 arts district.

mudac will have the privilege of revealing to the public for the first time the collection of Thierry Barbier-Mueller, one of the largest private collections in the world of chairs created by artists, designers and architects. The famous American director Robert Wilson will highlight this rich and diversified corpus by creating exceptional scenography, borrowed from the repertoire of the performing arts.

We are delighted to invite you to the opening of the exhibition which will take place on Thursday 27 October 2022 at 6 pm.

Yours sincerely,

Chantal Prod’Hom
Susanne Hilpert Stuber
Thierry Barbier-Mueller
Charlotte Savolainen-Mailler

Robert Wilson and Annick Lavallée-Benny, associate scenographer

Nachdem der oö. Künstler Manfred Kielnhofer auf Facebook einen Stern aus Impf-Spritzen gepostet hat, lassen jetzt Linz und Steyr seine bekannten Skulpturen, die sogenannten “Wächter der Zeit”, aus dem öffentlichen Raum entfernen. Das Posting Kielnhofers strotze vor antisemitischen Codes, heißt es. Wir haben den Künstler im RTV Talk um eine Stellungnahme gebeten.
