To coincide with the centenary of the Bauhaus, a major exhibition entitled ‘max bill. bauhaus constellations’ opens at Hauser & Wirth Zürich on 9 June 2019. Curated by Dr Angela Thomas Schmid, President of the Max Bill Georges Vantongerloo Stiftung, the exhibition explores the dynamic dialogues with the group of artists Bill met at the influential German school.
The Bauhaus period had a lasting impact on Bill who creatively developed the ideas he encountered there throughout his oeuvre. Works from the artist’s own collection are presented in combination with archive materials he assembled during his lifetime. The artists featured alongside Bill include Josef Albers, Lyonel Feininger, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy, Kurt Schwitters, Oskar Schlemmer, Sophie Taeuber-Arp and Georges Vantongerloo.
