Sol Calero presents Casa Isadora, a pavilion in the Brücke Museum’s garden, in the form of a walk-in painting open to all visitors. Inspired by the paintings and woodcuts of the Brücke artist group, Calero designed the pavilion combined with her unique visual language informed by Latin American art and popular aesthetics. The pavilion is meant to celebrate collaborative work and the art school as a place of unorthodox learning. One of a series of similar structures, Casa Isadora invites visitors to make objects that become part of the architecture’s decoration and equipment. These objects travel to the next pavilion, or “house”, such that these structures and their participants are connected in an ongoing collaboration. Casa Isadora is meant to expand and be supplemented within the months of its unveiling with workshops and events.
Casa Isadora lives from the interactions of its guests, offering a space for group work and spontaneous conversations as well as a place for relaxed lingering.
