Marauding UFO dreams rediscovered:
In the 1970s, the futuristic round houses designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen were the expression of a Utopia that had become reality. Modern, cheerful and optimistic about the future, the UFO-like houses made of fibreglass and polyurethane sheathing landed in numerous places around the world. Following space-age thinking, many artists and designers were interested in these unusual dwellings. Most of the Futuro and Venturo houses disappeared and have long been forgotten. Unexpectedly, however, the Munich photographer Michael Nischke stumbled across a whole cluster of these design icons during a visit to Taiwan: overlooked and neglected, they were gradually rotting away. The series he created there has its very own futuristic and morbid charm. This January 2023, it will be exhibited at 1839 Contemporary Gallery in Taipei, Taiwan.
