Robert Wilson / Grassi Museum für Angewandte Kunst, Leipzig, Germany

Exhibition Curation
The museum displays one of the world's largest private collections of chairs designed by over 100 artists, designers, and architects from the 1960s to the present day. Since the late 1990s, the Genevan entrepreneur and collector Thierry Barbier-Mueller has brought together countless innovative and unusual chair designs whose quality goes far beyond the usual typology of chairs. The presentation of the over 150 chairs was entrusted to the renowned American director and artist Robert Wilson. In an extraordinary staging, he immerses visitors in expansive worlds in which the chairs become the protagonists of a theatrical performance.
