Atopia: Migration, Heritage and Placelessness

Atopia: Works from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Collection is an ambitious exhibition developed in collaboration with the Museo de Arte Moderno de Bogotá, Colombia. „Atopia,“ a word mainly used in medicine and philosophy, literally means placelessness, out of place, unclassifiable and of high originality. The exhibition focuses on the practices and representations of the ways in which artists have accessed, rehearsed, participated in and negotiated concepts of “place” or “place of origin,” their past, heritage, and cultural ambiguities, with all the dilemmas such notions provoke. The project Woman to Go will be featured.

Exhibition: March 1– June 4, 2016

MIGROS Museum

Titled Momentary Monuments, the new installment of Collection on Display scheduled to open in February 2016 will present works that examine the significance and function of monuments for a larger exploration of memory and forgetting. In the perspective of art history, the evolution of sculpture is closely intertwined with that of monument culture. Effigies of rulers, equestrian statues, and monuments always reflect the tastes, worldviews, and designs of the powerful patrons who commissioned them. Yet they also illustrate contemporary developments in the discourse of art. Monuments served—and still serve—to propagate the prevailing ideas of their time and visualize the interpretation of events and personalities the ruling élites hope to enshrine in history books and collective memory. In contemporary art, the idea of the monument has become a focal point for artists’ engagement with the question of who determines how history is written and the representation of power in the public arena. The exhibition Momentary Monuments combines works from the collection familiar to our regular visitors with others that have rarely been on view and several new acquisitions that will make their début in Zurich.

Collection on Display is curated by Nadia Schneider Willen (Collection Curator, Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst).

20.02.–16.05.2016
Opening: Friday, 19.02.2016, 6–9pm

Art & Anthropology. Ethnographische Bezüge in der zeitgenössischen Kunst

The exhibition pairs artists together who use ethnographic tactics to decode images of Otherness and find strategies for co-habitation, togetherness, and community: states of being so paramount in our modern times. Showing alternative perspectives, dialogues from the so-called „Other,“ the artists employ various media from film, photography, installation, and object installments. The works lead us from the terrains of Mexico, Argentina or Namibia, and with this travel, the artists open up a space of poetic possibility.

Exhibition: January 23rd – April 3rd, 2016
Opening: Friday 22nd, January, 6pm
Artist Talk: Sunday 24th, January, 12pm

Kemnade klingt!

Aktuelle Positionen der Klangkunst, Medienkunst und experimentellen Musik in und um Haus Kemnade

Das temporäre Kunstprojekt Kemnade klingt! lässt das barocke Haus Kemnade zum Spielort aktueller Klang- und Medienkunst werden. Die künstlerischen Interventionen erstrecken sich dabei auf die unterschiedlichen Funktionsbereiche des Hauses, beziehen die Präsentationsräume der Musikinstrumentensammlung ebenso sowie den Kunstvereinsraum, aber auch den Außenbereich mit ein. Als Werke der aktuellen Kunst treten sie in Wechselwirkung mit dem Bestehenden, nehmen formal wie inhaltlich auf das barocke Gebäude und den Bestand historischer Musikinstrumente Bezug, generieren neue Bedeutungsbeziehungen, stellen andere und unerwartete Kontexte her und eröffnen somit nicht zuletzt neue Perspektiven auf das Haus und seine Sammlung.
