On view at Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Germany until 16th July 2023, Re-Inventing Piet. Mondrian and the Consequences curated by Andreas Beitin and Elena Engelbrech considers the prolific influence of Dutch artist, Piet Mondrian. From clothing and cosmetics packaging to watches, T‑shirts, bags, and even entire façades of buildings — who is not familiar with the catchy and quickly recognizable design of everyday objects which are based as uninhibitedly and bluntly appropriate the abstract compositions of one of the most important artists of the twentieth century: Piet Mondrian. Time and again, he called for art and life to be linked; and indeed, his works and their variations have visually invaded countless areas of life. Based on works from his most important creative period, the exhibition offers an insight into the multifaceted exploration of Piet Mondrian’s main neoplastic work through around 150 artworks and objects.
Under the aspect of reflection and reception, Joseph Kosuth’s exhibiting work Mondrian’s Work XV, 2015 approaches Mondrian’s paintings on a conceptual level by quoting various statements from Mondrian’s writings.
