CAFÉ CASINO – ART AND BREWERY AVANTGARDE
The temporary installation of the documenta 8 Café Casino, a legendary ensemble which conveys an authentic impression of art and design history, is on exhibition for visitors to Cologne Fine Art 2017.
Not only is the city of Cologne recognised as the birthplace of the 80s design movement, but the year 2017 also marks the 30th anniversary of documenta 8. With the upcoming anniversary of Bauhaus in 2019, the opportunity now arises to define the position of German Avantgard Design in the 1980s.
Here in the scenic staging of Café Casino, the design of this decade as the joyous response to the strict functionalism of the Bauhaus years, becomes visually tangible.
