William Morris: Kunde von Nirgendwo

»Ja, so soll es sein! Und wenn andere die neue Welt sehen können, wie ich sie gesehen habe, dann kann man, was ich erlebt, eher Gesicht nennen als einen Traum.« William Morris

William Morris‘ sozialistische Utopie Kunde von Nirgendwo spielt mit der Wortbedeutung von U-topia als Nicht-Ort. Dabei ist sein Roman sehr genau verortet, nämlich im Londoner Vorort Hammersmith.

The Enchanted Garden, opening on 20.10.2018

⠀ William Morris was a key figure in the development of domestic garden design, helping to popularise the Arts and Crafts garden among the artistic middle class in England and the US. His gardens at Red House and then Kelmscott Manor supplied endless inspiration to Morris, his family and friends.⠀ ⠀ The Enchanted Garden will explore how Morris's contemporaries and subsequent generations of artists - from the Pre-Raphaelites to the Bloomsbury Group - have responded to the allure of garden spaces, using them as stages for the magical, menacing and romantic. Featured artists include Claude Monet, Lucian Pissarro, Edward Burne-Jones, Stanley Spencer, Beatrix Potter, Cicely Mary Barker, Roger Fry and Vanessa Bell.⠀ ⠀ The exhibition will feature highlights from our own collection, including this design for Trellis wallpaper from 1862 by Morris and Philip Webb. (Webb did the birds.)
