"With his clear language of forms, Gerrit Rietveld created revolutionary furniture during the 1920s. From Saturday, October 13, 2017, the Dutchman’s classic works can be seen alongside contemporary artists at Marta Herford.
Andreas Schmid links the Gehry galleries in height, width and depth with lines of coloured, adhesive tape, which maximize their effect as minimalist interventions in the space. This raises the question: Is there still a directness that emulates Rietveld? Hardly on Gehry's curved walls. Somehow, nothing is perpendicular here..."
