Tadaaki Kuwayama

Oberseestraße 60, 13053 Berlin Map
Tue–Sun 11 am–5 pm

With his dictum "less is more", Mies van der Rohe strongly influenced the art of the 20th century; especially minimalism. The Japanese artist Tadaaki Kuwayama (*1932), who lives in New York establishes a special case in the field of minimalist art.

His works are intended to create an intense and subjective experience. With "no statement, just feeling," according to Kuwayama, he refuses any theoretical appropriation. With his monochrome works, freed from any signature, the artist invites the viewer to experience a wide space of thought and experience. In combination with the contemplative atmosphere of the Mies van der Rohe House, a wonderful coincidence of art and architecture is created. Tadaaki Kuwayama had been on the wish list of the house for many years. A visit in the Bauhaus year, together with his wife Rakuko Naito, then brought the confirmation. The exhibition is curated by Dominik Olbrisch.
