Hugo Kükelhaus Society e.V.Expired
Since the society’s founding in 1993, the active examination of the ideas and the archive of works of Hugo Kükelhaus has been furthered with workshops, exhibitions and events in the form of symposia. In this connection, the matter of his work’s topicality is given priority time and again. This way, it is intended to prevent that the central statements become fixed in dogmas. The adoption of Kükelhaus’ thoughts in their social and temporal context is to be documented at the same time.
The society offers interested groups – but also individuals – to experience the variety of Kükelhaus’ creative, intellectual and practical activity during a visit there. The installation of objects and appliances from the Erfahrungsfeld [field of sensory experience] in the surroundings of his residence and place of work has begun and opens the opportunity of directly combining the (further) thinking about Hugo Kükelhaus with the sensory experience and thus of gaining an integral view of the work.
To enable and ensure the work in perpetuity, the Hugo Kükelhaus society aims at the establishment of a foundation which hedges the further work financially.
