Exhibition ‘Konstantin Grcic – Panorama’ (Vitra Design Museum 22 March–14 September 2014, Z33 House for Contemporary Art 1 February–14 May 2015) was developed over three years in close collaboration between designer Konstantin Grcic, Vitra Design Museum and Z33 House for Contemporary Art.
‘Konstantin Grcic – Panorama’ is the largest solo exhibition of one of the most influential designers of our time. ‘Panorama’ is not a mere retrospective exhibition, but rather a personal statement by Konstantin Grcic on the future.
Developing ‘Panorama’ becomes a part of ongoing research at Z33 House for Contemporary Art / Z33 Research on the role of exhibition format and exhibition design as motors for experience-based thinking, using the exhibition not as a medium but as a toolbox. For years, Z33 House for Contemporary Art has explored different formats and curatorial approaches in which the exhibition becomes a performative, participatory or narrative experience that is activated through interaction with the public.
