Mies van der Rohe founded the concept of ‘free-flowing space’, of the more or less seamless merging of outside and inside. Accompanying MIES VAN DER ROHE: THE MoMA COLLAGES, the exhibition INTERIOR x EXTERIOR presents artworks from the Ludwig Collection that explore architectural views from outside and in. Covering a diverse array of media, artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Ben Schonzeit and Ira Joel Haber examine architecture’s many manifestations. Design and architecture become artistic motifs.

His shots capture the profound economic, ecological, and geological changes our high-tech world is going through in the Anthropocene age.
