Fluxus Module exhibition at Museum Ostwall by modulorbeat, Dortmund – Germany

November 30th, 2012 by retail design blog

For the exhibition, “FLUXUS – Art for Everyone!” at Museum Ostwall in the Dortmunder U, modulorbeat was commissioned to develop an exhibition architecture. Their ‘Fluxus Module’ project uses 300 items from the years 1958 to 2007 that critically address the events of their times to offer a new and playful look at the everyday. The exhibition architecture works with a modular plywood element that was especially developed for this Fluxus exhibition.

The exhibition presents various objects used in action-oriented art and strategies used for the dissemination of ideas and concepts. Major protagonists are featured, such as George Brecht, Robert Filliou, Dick Higgins, Allan Kaprow, Milan Knížák, Alison Knowles, and Wolf Vostell. Uniting these figures is a position grounded in reality, and their development of strategies to reintegrate art into everyday life.

The plywood modules are playfully implemented in a variety of ways – horizontally, vertically, as a shelf, display case, and platform – coming together in an impressive spatial structure in the large skylit hall of the Dortmunder U.
