The Year of Adolf Loos 2020 Echoes - exhibitions in Adolf Loos interiors

Sutnarka pays Adolf Loos a visit

Sutnarka, the progressive Faculty of Design and Art at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen, was invited to hold exhibitions of the Pilsen interiors designed by the world-renowned architect Adolf Loos. It is safe to assume that the young Ladislav Sutnar could have ran into the experienced Adolf Loos in Pilsen, Prague or Vienna sometime during the 1920s. It’s apparent the cultural tendencies of the day, of which the innovator of modern architecture actively declared, impacted Suntar’s approach to design and art. Sutnar often implemented the principles of functionalism in his work and applied them in the many fields in which he was employed in Europe and the USA. The curator of Sutnarka, Jan Van Woensel, is the mind behind three separate exhibitions, which invoke lively dialogue between art and design, architecture and artistic principles, culture and memories.
