Bruno Munari: The Man Who Made the Useless Machines
Besides his work as a painter, designer, and prolific writer of picture books, the Italian artist Bruno Munari (1907–1998) devoted himself to children’s art education. Although it is difficult to grasp the scope of his wide-ranging activities, regardless of the genre, Munari’s works are based on a simple idea and are immediately appealing to anyone of any age. The itinerant Japanese exhibition ‘Bruno Munari: The Man Who Made the Useless Machines’ looks back at his career, which began with the Italian Futurists, by examining approximately 300 works. This comprehensive monograph complements and broadens the exhibition’s overview of his visionary life and work.
