The Mind Expanding Program of Haus-Rucker-Co

Opening-Weekend Artist Talk

Part of Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia

Haus-Rucker-Co’s radical architectural practice in the late 1960s and 1970s encompassed the use of spectacular inflatable environments, futuristic technological prosthetics, and engaging urban interventions to expand artistic boundaries. The collective’s air-inflated architecture and wearable appendages were designed to alter participants’ social and perceptual experiences.

Join Günter Zamp Kelp, a founding member of the group, who will discuss works featured in the exhibition in an informal gallery talk and also present a rare public lecture about Haus-Rucker-Co’s larger body of work that has proved inspirational to a new generation of artists and designers.

Copresented with the University of Minnesota College of Design, School of Architecture.
