Sunday guided tours
The tour of the current exhibitions with Debora Schär recalls the political caricatures produced in the second half of the 20th century, in reference to Basel-based artist Hans Geisen (Gei, 1919-1992). The parallel exhibition on Zurich's Andreas Gefe (b. 1966) provides a counterpoint, presenting a modern illustrator and painter whose oeuvre revolves around people and relationships.

The Red-Blue Chair - Let's Build an Icon (DE)
The Dutch artist Gerrit Rietveld created several designs that were meant to be easy for anyone to recreate. To this end, he produced instruction manuals for constructing pieces of furniture and prefabricated houses. He took simple wooden elements and designed a system for slotting them together to form the basis of his elegant, clean-cut furniture. Starting with an introduction, the workshop will focus on trying out this concept on Rietveld's best-known design, the Red-Blue Chair. Each participant will build a 1:1 wooden model to take home and paint as they please.

Duration: 7 hours

Tour: Black Box. A Cabinet of Robotic Curiosities (DE)
The Vitra Campus has a new exhibition space: in one of the houses at the southern entrance, a Black Box has been installed which holds the collection of international toy robots belonging to Vitra Chairman Emeritus Rolf Fehlbaum. The presentation encompasses robots and figures of astronauts from the years 1937 to 1968. Many of them bear witness to the technological optimism of an age, when robotics and space travel were still largely fiction. Some of the selected objects are shown with the original packaging, which is often no less spectacular than the artefacts themselves. A number of the robots are seen in motion on video screens, while others are exhibited on turntable displays. The staging of the objects draws the viewer into a dark, minimalist dream world. The exhibition was conceived in collaboration with Fifo Stricker, Rolf Fehlbaum's friend and fellow collector. Dieter Thiel designed the architecture of the Black Box, and the scenography was developed together with French designer Ronan Bouroullec.

Visitors can experience the Black Box exclusively as part of a public guided tour. Registration: info@design-museum.de, max. 10 participants.

Price: 7.00 €
