Admission

Josef Frank – Against Design Ordinary price 120 kr. Concessions (students and senior citizens): SEK 100. Visitors under the age of 20 and Friends of ArkDes: Free.

As a pioneer of Modernism, Josef Frank continues to inspire designers with the diversity of his output. Amongst the important works on display in the Josef Frank – Against Design exhibition are pieces of furniture from the first interior he created in 1910 – Karl and Hedwig Tedesko’s apartment in Vienna – and items from Haus & Garten, the furnishing house that Frank ran in Vienna with his colleague Oskar Wlach.
Josef Frank was born in Baden in 1885 and came to be one of the key figures in Austrian architecture and design in the 1910s and 1920s. In 1933, because of increasing anti-Semitism, he left Austria for his wife’s home country of Sweden. From 1939 to 1947 he worked in the United States, but subsequently returned to Stockholm, where he was employed as a designer for Svenskt Tenn until his death in 1967.

Josef Frank as architect

Most of Frank’s architectural work in Austria focussed on social housing projects for the working classes. In 1932, Frank was in charge of the Werkbundsiedlung housing exhibition, which was part of Vienna’s public housing programme “Rotes Wien”. The exhibition was an important contribution to the debate on freer lifestyles in a modern age.

Alongside this, Frank also undertook commissions for more affluent families, including the well-known Villa Beer in Vienna, built between 1929 and 1931. In Sweden, Josef Frank is known as the originator of some of the first functionalist architecture in the country – five holiday homes in Falsterbo, designed between 1924 and 1936.

Most of his time in Sweden was taken up with interior design and furniture projects. As early as 1934 he was taken on as a designer for Svenskt Tenn by Estrid Erikson. The exhibition shows several unique, original sketches for some of his best-known patterns.

Against Design

Over time, Josef Frank became increasingly critical of the severity of the Modernist movement and the attitude of the designer to the notion of the Gesamtkunstwerk, or ‘total work of art’, involving the super-designed environment, standardised furniture and the invention of new forms for their own sake. Neither a personalised, artistically-inspired design nor a standardised, machine-made product were meaningful in his eyes; his own creations were inspired more by the classical tradition. It is his criticism that prompts the title of our exhibition: Josef Frank – Against Design.

Instead, he developed a softer, less restrictive approach, articulated in a philosophy of architecture and interior design he called “Accidentism”.

“All the places where we are comfortable – rooms, streets and cities – have arisen through coincidences”, wrote Frank in 1958 in the magazine Form, where the concept was first launched. Frank welcomed a less restrictive philosophy of architecture and interior design that accommodated both the high-brow and the low-brow – good and poor taste. This approach was put into practice in the “fantasy houses:” thirteen sketches for houses that Frank designed for his friend Dagmar Grill.

The exhibition features several of the original watercolours from the ArkDes collections. The houses are far removed from the austere design idiom of Modernism in terms of both style and expression. Frank summarised his new, inclusive philosophy in an unpublished manuscript: “Every great work of art must border on kitsch”.

Film Screening: Koyaanisquatsi

18:00  In Biografen (The cinema), floor 2


To coincide with The Future Starts Here, an exhibition interrogating our relationship to technology and design, ArkDes presents three film screenings that each explore the impact of design on Planet Earth. From different perspectives and with different approaches, each film asks a simple question: to what extent is the planet a design project?

Koyaanisquatsi

The cult film Koyaanisqatsi, with an acclaimed soundtrack by Philip Glass, was Godfrey Reggio’s directorial debut and constitutes the first part of his Qatsi trilogy. The title is a word borrowed from the Hopi Native American tribe and means, “life out of balance.” Made between 1975 and 1982, the film is an apocalyptic vision of the collision of two worlds, the urban and the rural, and explores how modern life is out of balance with nature. (Director: Godfrey Reggio. 1983. 87 min)

In Biografen (The cinema, floor 2). Free admission.

Opening Vernissage! Architecture Projects: Skeppsbron

17:00  


Architecture Projects: Skeppsbron is the first in a series of exhibitions that brings together some of Sweden’s most talented architects to consider the question: What do we want our city to be?

Free from the constraints that define most architectural projects, eight architects and practices have been invited to present speculations on the future of Skeppsbron and Skeppsbrokajen in Gamla Stan, Stockholm. Historically, this large waterfront site has been one of the city’s most vibrant commercial centres and stands today as a defining image of the capital. But there is no clear vision for how this important slice of the city could be used in the future.

Speculation has always been a fundamental aspect of architecture and urbanism. A central role of the architect is to think differently. Architecture Projects: Skeppsbron celebrates the architect’s ability to address the city as a layered, multifaceted environment capable of absorbing radical and unexpected proposals that help us to see the potential of the city in a new light.

Book launch: Permanent Temporariness, by Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti

18:00  


Permanent Temporariness is a book, a catalogue, and an archive that accounts for 15 years of research and experimentation by Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti.

The publication presents and reflects on issues related to the condition of permanent temporariness that permeates contemporary forms of life. Some of the concepts addressed by Hilal and Petti’s work span from the role of architecture in refugee camps, the critical understanding of the idea of heritage, or the potential of hospitality to subvert the separation of private and public life.

Participants: Charles Esche, Sandi Hilal, Walter Mignolo, Alessandro Petti, Rahel Shawl

The event brings together the authors along with collaborators and friends for an informal conversation around some of the projects and ideas included in the book.

In ArkDes Library.
