Zeit des Sitzens
The core of the exhibition is the first of four episodes of the film “Zeit des Sitzens”, which was developed in collaboration with the sculptor Anna Herms. In the role of the director of the fictional collection “GOOD DESIGN from 60 Years of Germany”, Polzin as Maximilianus Nadènne meets the fictional design icon Christina Zierakc to uncover a success story of the “Exile Collective”. According to Polzin’s narrative, this has fundamentally influenced the “Federal German design history”, while their furniture was considered to be “unseatable” and the “most uncomfortable”.
The exhibition features a screening of the first episode of “Zeit des Sitzens” and a selection of seating sculptures.
