In the early 20th century, Moroccan carpets fascinated artists such as Wassily Kandinsky and Le Corbusier and today bring images of Mark Rothko or Cy Twombly to mind. Carpets from Morocco in particular lead us to the roots of European avant-garde art. Pinakothek der Moderne investigates the intrinsic links between modern art genres and North African textile design. The exhibition Moroccan Carpets and Modern Art is on view at the Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich from September 13th, 2013.
