Max Bill

Structure, 1960

Max Bill is uncontestably the best known post-War Swiss artist; he also stands as a model of a complete artist, active in teaching, architecture, design, and cultural politics. The idea behind the presentation of this “hut” in Geneva is to alter the perceptions of the artist’s public works. The possibility to sit down and find a form of hospitality in this simple, geometric structure, which is typical of Concrete art, opens up a new dimension in the reception of Bill’s work.
