The artist Josef Trattner has been working with foam material for many years and has realized numerous projects in public space. An essential characteristic of Trattner’s works is the overlap of artistic aspects – the relation of materiality, form and color to interior and exterior space – with social issues.
For the Frederick Kiesler Foundation he has executed a space sculpture with the dimensions 3 x 3 x 3 meters, which can be utilized by the visitors.

Face to Face with the Avant-Garde
New publication edited by Peter Bogner and Gerd Zillner, published by Birkhäuser, 2019
Frederick Kiesler was a committed networker and communicated regularly with the who’s who of the avant-garde. Twenty-one contributions portray his multi-faceted oeuvre in various contexts, and place Kiesler in a dialog with the most important artistic currents, artists and architects of his time: Bauhaus, the futurists, surrealism, and the New York School, as well as with personalities such as Hans Arp, Theo van Doesburg, Marcel Duchamp, Sigfried Giedion, Arshile Gorky, Piet Mondrian. This book proves that Kiesler was an important intermediary between the visionary ideas of the European Moderne movement and the up-and-coming New York art scene.
