THE INFINITE INTERIOR OF FRIEDL DICKER: VIENNA 1898 AUSCHWITZ 1944 NEW YORK 2023

 

MARK WIGLEY

One of the first and strongest students at the Bauhaus in 1919, Friedl Dicker was ultimately more Bauhaus than the Bauhaus—developing a unique trans-disciplinary mode of practice that crossed architecture, interior design, theater sets, fashion, textiles, accessories, painting, photo-collage, graphic design, typography, toys, and pedagogy. This lecture explores the unique sense of interior that Dicker constructed, an architecture to both defend people from a relentlessly brutal exterior world and to free individual creativity in daily life. Dicker’s gift was an unbinding interior, an agile but ultimately fragile space that was systematically erased along with so many of those sheltered within it. Yet the space survives in lingering archival traces that are themselves defiant witnesses—and provocations for design in multiple contexts today.
