BELL-SHAPED CANDLE HOLDER AND VASE
Josef Hoffmann, designed 1911
This mirror-polished brass candlestick shows Hoffmann at the height of his artistic powers. The absence of surface ornamentation draws attention to its pure, geometric forms, which are a hallmark of modern design.
BARONESS ELSA: GENDER, DADA, AND EVERYDAY MODERNITY
In Baroness Elsa, Irene Gammel traces the extraordinary life and work of this daring woman, viewing her in the context of female dada and the historical battles fought by women in the early twentieth century. Striding through the streets of Berlin, Munich, New York, and Paris wearing such adornments as a tomato-soup can bra, teaspoon earrings, and black lipstick, the Baroness erased the boundaries between life and art, between the everyday and the outrageous, between the creative and the dangerous. Her art objects were precursors to dada objects of the teens and twenties, her sound and visual poetry were far more daring than those of the male modernists of her time, and her performances prefigured feminist body art and performance art by nearly half a century.
