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”.

Lecture: Live Curating in Architecture – From Master Houses to Working with a Broken Planet

16:00  


How to exhibit something so big, so unmovable as architecture? Making architecture exhibitions is challenged by the absence of the object of architecture. Public lecture by professor Elke Krasny, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna followed by a panel discussion.

Much exhibition making still relies on the historical triad of drawing, plan, and model making use of the remnants left behind in the wake of the architectural design process.

But what about curating architecture? What about live curating in architecture? The lecture explores two different sites: the Master Houses, icons of modernism in Dessau, Germany, and the Open Centre/Free Middle, an urban wilderness on former railway lands currently transformed into a new urban neighborhood in Vienna. From these sites we will learn that live curating in architecture reveals the conditions of capital, technology, ecology, and labor architecture is a response to and an expression of. Moving from progress-centric Modernism to the Anthropocene-violence of our present moment, live curating engages the scale of 1:1 and performs architecture rather than turning it into a show.

Public lecture by professor Elke Krasny, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna followed by a panel discussion with professor Elke Krasny, Thordis Arrhenius, associate professor KTH School of Architecture and Christina Pech, research coordinator and lecturer, ArkDes. Moderated by Roemer van Toorn, professor at UMA / Umeå School of Architecture.

Elke Krasny is professor for Art and Education at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. She holds a PhD from the University of Reading, UK. Her research connects contemporary art, architecture, urbanism, memory studies, and feminisms. She explores curatorial formats including research-based exhibitions, field work, conversations, collective writing, reading groups, the public feminist forum, or care walks. In 2012, she was a visiting scholar at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal. Curatorial works include: Critical Care. Architecture and Urbanism for a Broken Planet, with Angelika Fitz, at Architekturzentrum Wien, Vienna Austria 2019, Suzanne Lacy’s International Dinner Party in Feminist Curatorial Thought, shown in the framework of the 2016 AHRA Conference Architecture & Feminisms at KTH Stockholm, In Reserve! The Household with Regina Bittner at Bauhaus Dessau 2015, and Hands-On Urbanism 1850-2012.The Right to Green, Venice Biennale for Architecture, 2012.

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.
