Frederick J. Kiesler - architect, sculptor, painter, designer, set designer and theoretician. Kiesler was tireless in his pursuit of a radical new concept of interior spaces: his dream was a polydimensional living space, an organic continuum in which color, form and light - combined with magical and mythical themes - would create a unique cosmos. His so-called Endless House stayed with him all his life; although it was never realised it still fascinated and influenced other architects and artists more than many 'real' 20th-century buildings. The publication Endless Space has been produced in cooperation with the Austrian Frederick and Lillian Kiesler Private Foundation. Based on the rich holdings in this foundation it has been possible to reconstruct Kiesler's ideals of living and his concept of modernity. The architect: Frederick J. Kiesler (1890-1965). Born in Vienna, he emigrated in 1926 to New York. In 1933 he became Director for Stage Design at the Julliard School of Music. In 1942 he designed the interior of Peggy Guggenheim's legendary gallery Art of This Century, and in 1947 he was responsible for the design of the International Surrealist Exhibition put on by André Breton and Marcel Duchamp in the Maeght Gallery, Paris.
