Goethe Pop Up Kansas Citywelcomes the German-American artistic collaboration of Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero (Luftwerk) as they kickoff their month-long exhibition with us on First Friday. Come join us for the first night of this very exciting exhibition in the framework of the Year of German American Friendship.
Geometry of Light | Fundraiser
Thursday, December 13, 2018. Event starts at 6 pm.
$25 RSVP HERE
Luftwerk and MAS Context, in collaboration with the Mies van der Rohe Society, invite you to an event that includes the announcement of their upcoming project Geometry of Light and the screening of the documentary Mies on Scene. The event will take place at the historic Robert F. Carr Memorial Chapel of St. Savior at IIT, the only building ever designed by Mies van der Rohe for religious services (65 E 32nd St, Chicago, IL 60616).
Architect Dirk Lohan, grandson of Mies van der Rohe, will share insights about the Barcelona pavilion as an emblematic work of the Modern Movement as well as a critical project in the career of Mies van der Rohe.
Responding to the form and function of the entrance hallway at 21c Kansas City, Luftwerk’s Linear Sky produces an anamorphic optical illusion of an expanding, outward pattern of line and color upon both entering and exiting the ramp.
Transition | Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Conservancy
Luftwerk’s artwork titled Transition traces a portion of the Greenway path as it shines a light—both literally and metaphorically—on this connective artery in the city. Celebrating the green layer that reunites the neighborhoods once divided by the freeway, it nods to the now buried thoroughfare of Interstate 93 below.
