»For recent opening of the Pinakothek der Moderne in September 2013
it was natural to start thinking about an overarching theme that
really makes a statement . And we are convinced that such a subject
to have found : It marks the beginning of modernity. And it this way
unusual perspective , it has so far received little attention :
Nomadic rugs from Morocco and the Western avant-garde art of the 20th
Century - which is more than the search for the exotic -
Oriental , rather it is an exploration of the roots of the art of
Modernity and its startling similarities with textiles from the
Maghreb. \"
Florian Hufnagl , Director , Die Neue Sammlung - The International Design
Munich Museum ( State Museum of Applied Arts )
Various sources of inspiration of modern art are so far in the
Focus of attention shifted : about Japanese woodblock prints and
Katagami , East Asian ceramics and furniture, African sculptures and
the phenomenon of the so-called \" primitivism \" . the Moroccan
Carpets - an art of women - are still waiting to be discovered with
their interactions or analogies to European and
American painting of the 20th Century.
Moroccan nomad rugs let us today to Mark Rothko , Cy
Twombly , Sean Scully, Josef Albers, Paul Klee and Kasimir Malevich
. thinking In the early 20th Century they fascinated artists such as Wassily
Kandinsky, Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright. the dispute
with the Islamic culture of North Africa and the carpets
Morocco thus leads to the roots of the art of European
The Islamic iconoclasm inspired the Berbers in the Maghreb
radical abstraction and a totally free , to our modern eyes
seeming use of colors and shapes. In the exhibition and in
extensive accompanying book is therefore quite generally the
Question of the basic conditions of art , according to their origins and
for the way to abstraction.
Purely in times of globalization with increasing dominance of Western
Ideas on the one hand and the radicalization of Islam on the other hand
it has high relevance, based on this thread to look at the spiritual
Relationships and cultural exchanges at an interface
to judge between East and West - and to engage in dialogue and
To develop perspectives for the future.
The exhibition of the Neue Sammlung - The International Design Museum
Munich - focuses on the rich collection of Moroccan
Carpets from the possession of the Munich architect Professor Jürgen Adam . in
He has run during his decades of research on the
Adobe buildings in Morocco, one of the world\'s most important
Private collections assembled on this subject. the exhibition
is in the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich , take place , because there
can particularly impressive and the inner connections between
the art forms are illuminated , the basis for the design
form of this unique , cross -disciplinary home.
The extensive publication is as true to scale standard -setting work
created and inserted the first time the relationship dar. The book -
bilingual German and English - is in cooperation with Arnoldsche Art
Publishers realized. With strong expressive illustrations , comparative examples
from the field of contemporary art and introductory texts used it
aware also to non - specialists , to a public that for themselves
modern art and its origins are interested , for the culture of North Africa
or \"other\" Islam and - for the \" magiciennes de la laine \" as
might be called the Berber artists .
