Ursula von Rydingsvard

The Contour of Feeling
This publication documents Ursula von Rydingsvard’s exhibition at The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia, which features a large new leather work produced with the museum’s studio.

Oskar Schlemmer

Oskar Schlemmer (1888–1943) was one of the most versatile all-rounders of the last century and as unusual as a painter as he was as a sculptor, draughtsman, graphic artist, stage designer, wall designer, creator of epochal dance projects and author.
