MAK Center Los Angeles
It was with a restless insistence that architect, artist, designer, set-designer and theoretician Frederick J. Kiesler (1890–1965) pursued his vision of a radically new concept of private space – a multidimensional living space, a continuum in which form, color and light, combined with magically mythic contents, would create a universe of its own.
Though the "Endless House", Kiesler's life-long dream, was never materialized, it has enthralled both architects and artists more than many realized twentieth-century buildings. The exhibition was prepared in cooperation with the Friedrich-und-Lillian-Kiesler-Privatstiftung (Frederick and Lillian Kiesler Foundation). Employing the foundation's comprehensive collections, it has attempted to reconstruct Kiesler's idea of living.
