Goshka Macuga was one of the 4 nominees for the Turner Price 2008. She presented these 3 installations called “Haus der Frau 1″, “Haus der Frau 2″ and “Deutsches Volk – deutsche Arbeit”, beside other work. They are based on the collaboration between Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich during the 20ies and 30ies. “Haus de Frau 1″ & “Haus der Frau 2″ are actually displays to present textiles, just like Mies van der Rohe & Lilly Reich did. “Deutsches Volk – deutsche Arbeit” was actually designed by Mies van der Rohe & Lilly Reich for an exhibtion to promote German glass.
In this video Goshka talks about her work and exhibition at the Tate Galery.
