Otto Piene (1928−2014) aimed high with his art: to shape a more harmonious, peaceful, and sustainable world. His expansive view explored new media and projected aesthetic forms and experiences into new spatial realms. Structured thematically, the monographic exhibition traces his utopian vision as expressed in works from his most significant series and projects in conversation with his lifelong practice of sketching.
