Otto Neurath: MAK Ctr, Los Angeles, CA
Saw this today at the Schindler house on N King (MAK Ctr is free 4-6 on Fri's fyi). Cool little house. His architectural plans were the most interesting, and the video work was rad. His wife's children's books were also pretty awesome. I like that they used the Schindler house as a meeting place for friends/collaborators/colleagues. It feels like a restaurant I went to in Tokyo once. Worth checking out only if you're into Otto/really like architecture. Neurath invented the “ISOTYPE” system (the Exit sign etc), essentially Pictogramms (symbols, icons).
Totally random that this exhibition was going on after my last post, I only found out today. What a nice surprise.
