Exhibition focuses on the relationship between Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser

This year’s annual exhibition Josef Hoffmann—Koloman Moser (through 28 October 2018) in Josef Hoffmann Museum in Brtnice, a joint branch of the Moravian Gallery in Brno and MAK Vienna, is dedicated to relations between two artist friends and preeminent designers of Viennese Modernism. The works of Koloman Moser (1868–1918) are considered the artistic antithesis of Josef Hoffmann’s (1870–1956) when it comes to the architecture of their designs: while Hoffmann remained a tectonically austere creator, Koloman Moser always incorporated a decorative, painterly element. Designs and objects from the areas of graphics, glass, and ceramics are displayed in the exhibition so as to place these exceptional artists’ works in dialogue with one another and render their individual characteristics visible. The careers and works of both creators are closely linked.
