Exhibition: Retrospective “Jasper Morrison: Thingness”
22nd March - 23rd October 2017, Bauhaus Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung, Berlin, Germany
DATE: 23/10/2017
"The exhibition was developed in cooperation with Jasper Morrison and CID (Grand-Hornu, Belgium). In addition to manufactured products, the chronological presentation also encompasses explanatory comments, publications, drawings, photographs and unrealised designs as well as materials from the designer’s archive. It is thus able to provide deeper insights into the backgrounds and creative processes behind the individual works – from the initial search for ideas all the way to their realisation. The retrospective is accompanied by a richly varied programme of events.

“During the design process Jasper Morrison occupies himself intensively with what already exists, in order to thus arrive at new solutions. We are very pleased to be able to present key works from his current oeuvre at this exhibition”, explains Annemarie Jaeggi, Director of the Bauhaus Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung. Museums like London’s Victoria and Albert Museum or New York’s Museum of Modern Art have already been collecting his designs for quite some time. Morrison has received distinctions, including the IF Transportation Design Prize and the Ecology Award, for a number of his products."
