Kasseler Museumsnacht 2019

 

In the exhibition "bauhaus | documenta. Vision and Brand" (until September 8, 2019 in the Neue Galerie Kassel), not only the famous lamp by Wilhelm Wagenfeld plays a central role, but also the countless counterfeits produced from this Bauhaus icon. In order to illustrate the steadily growing interest and worldwide distribution of this lamp, numerous counterfeits were used for the exhibition both in a large light installation and to illuminate the exhibition.

 

Wilhelm Wagenfeld exclusively authorised Tecnolumen to produce the reeditions, which is why the Bremen producer keeps a watchful eye on the imitators and producers of plagiarism. He has made available to the exhibition the imitations he has collected himself on the condition that they be destroyed at the end of the exhibition.

 

On September 7, the Kasseler Museumsnacht and the penultimate day of the exhibition, these counterfeits will now be destroyed in a public event, as is regularly the case in industry with counterfeits of trademark-protected products. The provocative format - in which functional lamps are destroyed because they do not meet the copyright and trademark criteria - expands the dialogue on this multifaceted topic.

 

With this campaign, the curators want to stimulate a dialogue on topics such as "original and counterfeit", "product and cultural asset" and "brands and sustainability", which are also dealt with centrally in the exhibition.

 

The event will be accompanied by Philipp Oswalt.
