(now in english)

An exhibition that illuminates the various boundaries around us by selecting the masterpieces of the museum collection in accordance with the six themes related to “boundaries”.  Among the works of various genres and times, the sculpture of Max Bill, “Plane Divided by One Line” (1949),  which is rare in Japan, is exhibited.

Max Bill studied at the Bauhaus as a student. He became the first director of the Ulm School of Design after the war and was involved in education at the school. He was an artist, active in many fields of arts, like architecture, painting, sculpture, graphic design, product design. He worked in a wide range of fields beyond boundaries.

It is a good chance to see his sculpture work in Japan.
