Crossing Borders: Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe immigrated to the US from Germany around 1938. In America, Mies van der Rohe’s career as an architect and teacher flourished, and his distinctive high-modernist designs proved hugely influential on generations of architects internationally. It wasn’t until his last project, the weightless pavilion for Berlin’s New National Gallery (pictured here in a perspective collage), completed in 1968, that Mies van der Rohe again set foot in the country of his birth.

Our digital exhibition “Crossing Borders,” presented as part of our #CitizensBorders initiative, showcases works from MoMA’s collection by artists who immigrated to the U.S., often as refugees in search of safe haven. Explore all the works at mo.ma/crossingborders

If you feel bad about your gallery not being diverse because you draw pokemon comics…

consider that in your comics you are drawing panels upon panels of landscapes of forests or beaches or prairies, mountains, caves, cities, interiors, furniture, different perspectives, people of all sizes and shapes and colors interacting together, animals, lighting, textures, things in motion, and various elements.

Just because its a pokemon comic doesn’t mean that you don’t have a diverse gallery in a page.
